Formerly, the two islands were separate, but the channel between them, Little Hell Gate, was filled in by the early 1960s. The island had a population of 1,648 living on 2.09 square kilometers (520 acres) according to the 2010 Census. Most of the island is parkland, spanning a total of 432.69 acres (175.10 ha).
