An opening image in the Rikers segment of Jails of New York in the NYCTV Original Productions "Secrets of NY" series was a space satellite photo showing outlines of the island's 10 jails and its position relative to the boroughs. Note bridge linking the island to Queens, even though jurisdictionally Rikers is in the Bronx. Also note the end of a LaGuardia Airport runway jutting into the East River near the island.
