At one time there were many River Seine islands in Paris. Today there are two remaining islands forming the centre of Paris, the Île de la Cité and the Île Saint-Louis. The westernmost of these two island, Île de la Cité, represents Paris' heart and origin. Its main feature is Notre Dame cathedral which is a magnet for visitors from all corners of the globe. The island is home to the Paris Prefecture de Police, Palais de Justice, and Hôtel-Dieu hospital. The smaller Île Saint-Louis is now mainly residential although it was first used for for the grazing of market cattle and the stocking of wood.

The Palais de Justice is located in the Île de la Cité in central Paris, France. It is built on the site of the former royal palace of Saint Louis, of which the Sainte Chapelle remains. It houses various courts.

The Pont Neuf - wikipedia

The Pont Neuf, oddly enough, is the oldest standing bridge across the river Seine in Paris. Its name— the "new bridge"— which distinguished it from the old bridges that were lined on both sides with houses, simply stuck. Standing by the western point of the Île de la Cité, the island in the middle of the river that was the heart of medieval Paris, it connects the left bank, the Rive Gauche of Paris with the Rive Droite, the right bank.
