Shortest Bridge of the World ...32 feet

            A bridge from a home to its island backyard is said to cross over the US/Canadian border
      The story of Zavikon Island goes back to the late 19th century with the tiny bridge between the two islands said to be the shortest international crossing in the world. Connecting United States and Canada.
      However, some sources indicate that both islands are in fact in Canada. Nevertheless, the story endures, with the diminutive bridge's charm supplanting geographic facts. The bridge is just 32 feet long, stretching from one island to the next in the Saint Lawrence River. The whole area has clusterings of hundreds of small islands in a 50-mile-long archipelago split between New York in the United States and Ontario in Canada, with the boundaries sometimes murky in the waters.
