A photographer captured some interesting footage of Just Enough Room Island, also known as Hub Island, located in the Thousand Islands chain, belonging to New York, United States. It’s currently known as the world’s smallest inhabited island, and measures around 3,300 square feet. The island was acquired by the Sizeland family in the 1950s, and consists of a house, tree, shrubs, and a small beach. Read more for a video and additional information.
You may have seen smaller islands, but to be officially known as such, the piece of land must have an area larger than one square foot, remain above water year round, and have at least one tree. Before Just Enough Room Island officially became the world’s smallest inhabited island, the title belonged to Bishop Rock, just off the Isles of Scilly, an archipelago off the southwestern tip of Cornwall, England.
