Rat Island, the 2.5-acre island between City Island and Hart's Island in the Bronx, is going up for auction October 2, and one boldface name might be interested: Ivanka Trump. "I first thought you meant Necker Island," Ivanka told a reporter at the New Yorkers for Children Gala last night. "Richard Branson's." Once the question was clarified, she said Rat Island sounded "really interesting," but that there was probably "a reason why it's undiscovered." The fact that its highest point goes underwater during severe storms might be part of it. [WSJ; previously]
