Tracie Hervy’s Three Boroughs is installed on a hill along the southeast waterfront of Randall’s Island Park. In the piece, three wooden frames echo Randall’s Island’s major geographical axes – thruways connecting the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens. The frames reflect not only the physical reality of the geometries of Randall’s 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 Randall’s Island. When viewers look through the frames at skyline on the other side, they are looking through Randall’s Island.
