Just driving through the main road through the little island next to Orchard Beach and near my favor subway station (Pelham Bay Park) and a hop from my favorite shopping mall by Coop City. Lots of restaurants with plenty of seafood to choose from.

While City Island is a seafood restaurant go to place, It's a nice community to stroll on the Avenue and check out the little shops. For casual dining, Johnny's Reef at the end of the island for fried seafood (always fresh, no nasty oil taste)...More
