The Thousand-Island International Bridge (French: Pont des Mille-îles) is an American-maintained international bridge system that connects northern New York and southeastern Ontario across the Saint Lawrence River. The bridges, which were built in 1937, span the Canada-US border in the midst of the Thousand Islands region.
Boldt Castle was built in 1900 at the request of millionaire hotel entrepreneur George C. Boldt as a memorial to his beloved wife Louise. Boldt Castle was created as their summer fantasy house. A European-style castle erected in the middle of the 1000 Islands. Mrs. Boldt, on the other hand, died unexpectedly just months before the castle's completion. Mr. Boldt was distraught and promptly halted all work, leaving the property unoccupied for over seventy years.
The 1000 Islands Tower is a concrete observation tower on Hill Island, which is technically on the United States-Canada border but is really in Ontario rather than New York State. The tower, which was built in 1965, offers panoramic views of both countries' Thousand Islands.
On Zavikon Island, there is a bridge that is the world's shortest international bridge (32 feet long). In the centre of the Saint Lawrence River, it connects a Canadian and an American island. The boundary agreement between Canada and the United States states that no island can be divided into two territories. Although Canada owns two-thirds of the islands, the total area of the Canadian islands is about equal to that of the American territories.
