How about Australia for largest island? The island/country itself isn't the continent. The continent of Australia includes many of the islands around it - including New Guinea.

No it actually doesn't. Although we group them as a "continent", most of those islands are atolls or volcanic and are not actually part of the Australian continental shelf. The continent of Australia only really includes the country itself and a few of the large islands around it. Same goes of for the Central American isthmus, which is also not really part of the continental shelf.

Right. Though the distinction between "continent" and "island" is a completely arbitrary one... if you don't make that distinction then the largest contiguous landmasses surrounded by water (islands) in the world are 1. Afro-Eurasia (if we don't count the Suez Canal as having dissected it in half) 2. The Americas (if we don't count the Panama Canal as having dissected it in half) 3. Antarctica 4. Australia 5. Greenland

There is some argument over whether or not Australia is a continent or island within the continent of "Oceania," though, so... whatever

Many people are unaware that Brooklyn and Queens are on Long Island. Most only know of the peninsula which comprises Nassau and Suffolk.
