Squaw Island (Buffalo)
A recreational area known as Broderick Park is located in the southern portion of Squaw Island, and has been the scene of high profile visits of local congressmen. The north end of the island is known as Squaw Island Park, and the middle has been a waste water treatment plant for the city since the 1970s.
Squaw Island is connected to Bird Island via the Bird Island Pier, which is a popular fishing area. The islands were 2,915 yards apart before being connected.
Bird Island was labeled on some 19th century maps, but isn't labeled often on current maps as it is essentially a reef today.
