Alexandria Bay, New York: Shortest "international bridge" crossing

Care to go from one country to another via bridge as quickly as possible?

This is the place to go, according to the tour guides.

On the left is Zavikon Island, which is located in Canada as part of the Thousand Islands. On the right is Little Zavikon Island, which is said to be in the United States, If you click on the picture, you can see the bridge between the two a little better. It is 32 feet long.

But there's a catch. It's not true.

According to official maps, both islands are actually on the same side of the border - Canada.

But I sure wish this was true - if only because this web page would receive many more hits.
