Huckleberry Island is an island located in Long Island Sound and part of New Rochelle, New York. It lies approximately three-fourths of one mile east of Davids' Island.[1]

In the 19th century local tradition held that the island was the location of the buried treasure of the pirate Captain William Kidd.[2]

The island has nesting areas used by colonial waterbirds such as egrets and night herons.[3]
