"A Park space that hosts events."
Randall's Island is officially part of Manhattan. It houses a few public works buildings but the majority of the island is a city park. The island houses a number of athletic facilities and has been the site of some world record breaking events; specifically i track and field. The island is also the host of many events including races and concerts. Ozfest has been held at the venue in past years and other bands and musicians have worked the venue. It's a bit difficult to get to and pretty out of the way but it's worth a visit for anyone who lives in Manhattan.
