French or Italian View of Roosevelt Island?

Apparently the text on this short 44 second video of Roosevelt Island is either French or Italian. The first sentence apparently describes the length and width of the island. The second island mentions something about the hospitals but I am unsure if it is saying there was or still is a penitentiary on the island. Amusing.

  1. Hi,
    It's French, and the second sentence says "Used to be occupied by hospitals, asylum and penitentiary, there are nowadays 10000 inhabitants". So it's both correct and not...
    By the way, nice work on the blog, it's a pleasure.
