The East River, running between Manhattan and the boroughs of Queens and Brooklyn in New York City is not actually a river, but a tidal estuary. The boroughs of New York are connected by four bridges over the East River: north to south, the Queensboro Bridge, the Williamsburgh Bridge, the Manhattan Bridge, and the Brooklyn Bridge. The East River begins at the Harlem River, which itself begins at the Hudson, and then flows into New York Harbor.

The East River contains Roosevelt Island.
