The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. The United States is a federal constitutional republic, with its capital in Washington, D.C., District of Columbia.
Grand Island is a town and an island in Erie County, New York, USA. As of the 2000 census, the town population was 18,621. The current town name derives from the French explorers' name Grande Isle, which has the same meaning as the native term Gah-We-Not. The town of Grand Island is located at the northwestern corner of the county. The town is northwest of Buffalo, New York. New York state route 324 crosses the island.
In the early historical period of the island, the 16th Century, French explorers found the Neutral indians living on the island. By 1651 the Senecas had destroyed this tribe and absorbed some of the survivors. The Seneca used the island for hunting and fishing. After the French and Indian War the island became part of the British colonies in North America. The town of Grand Island was organized in 1852 from part of the town of Tonawanda.
According to the United States census bureau, the town has a total area of 86.2 square kilometers. 73.8 square kilometers of it is land and 12.4 square kilometers of it is water. The town is located entirely on the island of Grand Island in the Niagara River. The river splits into two parts at the south end of the island and rejoins at the northwest end, before flowing west to the Niagara Falls.
In the town the population was spread out with 26.7 percent under the age of 18, 6.5 percent from 18 to 24, 27.7 percent from 25 to 44, 27.7 percent from 45 to 64, and 11.3 percent who were 65 years of age or older.
