Great area in NYC that feels like an old New England town. Try the restaurants while there. They have great fish dishes to eat while you enjoy the views and sunset.

My husband and I were visiting friends in The Bronx and one of our favorite places to go every time we visit is City Island. We all decided to go to Sammy's Fish Box for dinner because it was a warm evening and we could still walk around afterwards and see the Island. It is such a lovely community. We... More

If you live in Manhattan, then City Island must be a real treat, but for anyone else with access to a shoreline, it's just OK. The seafood establishments dole out respectable fare, albeit a little pricey for the Bronx, and parking can be a nightmare.

Several restaurants were expensive so we kept reading menus and chose a reasonably priced one where many locals were out front. The streets of City Island were beautiful especially with the blooming flowers and trees. People were friendly and the local craft venders were all smiling.

City Island is a wonderful enclave off the coast of the Bronx, accessible by mass transit (#6 train to pelham bay, then #29 bus) and cars, that offers an escape from the crowded city. while it is by no means the equivalent of Cape Cod or harbor towns in Long Island, it is great for a day excursion. The skyline... More
