The low and flat Grand Island is the largest of the islands dotting the Niagara River between Buffalo and Niagara Falls. (In fact, it's larger than Manhattan.) Two spectacular high-arching bridges ($1 toll) link it to the mainland. Once farmland, much of the island is now residential, and many of its inhabitants commute to Buffalo.
