Three Boroughs sits on a hill along the southeast waterfront of Randalls Island Park. Three wooden frames echo Randalls Islands major geographical axes thruways connecting the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens. The frames reflect not only the physical reality of the geometries of Randalls Island, but also the role it plays in knitting together the fabric of the city. The frames help define how visitors see the world across the river, but their genesis is Randalls Island. When viewers look through the frames at the skyline on the other side, they are looking through Randalls Island.
