Great Walking, Great Restaurants, Great Views

This is an interesting location in the city. It feels more like Cape Cod than New York. There are great restaurants, and great walking areas.

If you known Broad Channel in Queens - this is similar - except with a better restaurant scene. City Island is right next to Pelham Bay Park and it's golf courses. There is also a golf driving range that I've used right there was well (Turtle Cove). City Island is definitely about the food and the views. There are places... More

I love City Island. Even though I have moved out of New York, I still go back to go to City Island. The best seafood ever.

Lots of great restaurants, some with beautiful views, at very reasonable prices. Better in warm weather when outdoor tables are available.

Love Johnnys on the end for quic, fried seafood goodness. On the opposite end of the island is a rustic restaurant called JPs. It's great for finer dining. Best paella and baked clams on the island!

City Island is a seafood lover's dream - great seafood restaurants on the water. Those on the west side of the Island enjoy a beautiful view of Long Island Sound and the Manhattan skyline. You can take public transportation or drive. Its a unique spot in the city.
