Green Island, situated between Goat Island and the mainland, was named after the first park commissioner, Andrew Green. He was very prominent in New York City with the construction of Central Park, and the planning of northern Manhatten and today's Bronx. Green helped establish great cultural institutions such as the Museum of Natural History, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Bronx Zoo, and most importantly, led the Greater New York movement that joined the municipalities around Manhatten Island into today's 5-borough city.
