Clark Island, New York

Clark Island USA | N 44.52.42 W 75.11.29 | Waddington, New York, USA




The USA-Canada border runs more or less down the middle of the St Lawrence River. Clark Island, on the American side was adjacent to Canada Island on the Canadian side. This island is now entirely submerged, classified as a shoal or navigation hazard on marine charts; a small portion of what remains of Canada Island – no longer inhabited –rises above the river close to the waterfront in Morrisburg, Ontario. While the impact of the Seaway was smaller on American side, it too has submerged buildings and roads – such as here on Clark Island – visible from the air.
