http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zavikon_Island

Zavikon Island refers to either the larger or the pair of islands in the Thousand Islands archipelago on the St. Lawrence River between New York and Ontario, two kilometres southeast of Rockport, Ontario and about 200 meters north of the international boundary. As confirmed by various USGS and US Department of Defense maps, Zavikon Island is located in Canadian territory and belongs to the Leeds and Grenville municipal unit.[1][2]
Overview

The smaller and more southeasterly of the pair of islands is sometimes called Little Zavikon Island. It has a US-Canada Boundary Commission reference monument, from which, along with other reference monuments on the shore and islands, surveying measurement are used to calculate the international boundary line turning points in the waterway (in this case, about 140 meters southsoutheast of the southern tip of Little Zavikon Island as shown on the largest scale USGS map of the area.

A popular but incorrect tale among local guides is that the larger island is in Canada, while "Little Zavikon Island" is in the United States, and the footbridge between them is the "shortest international bridge in the world" [
