All the City's Islands

Do you know all of New York City's islands? If not, Brooklyn Brainery put together a fun list of the major (Roosevelt, Randall's, Hart, etc.) and the almost forgettably minor (including old Curbed favorite Rat Island). One of the latter, Chimney Sweeps Island, is uninhabited and last saw nightlife when it was home to a boaters' tavern in the early 20th century, but it still has a Foursquare mayor.
