Some of city island restaurants are wonderful but some are not worth the trip or money. We went to sammys for dinner and the food was ok. Yes the portions are large but the space is extremely cramped, and overpriced. It was clean and friendly but we won't be going back anytime soon.

It's hard to believe that this out-of-the-way strip is in NYC; in fact, part of the Bronx. It's about as close to the edge of the city that Coney Island is in the opposite direction. If you drive without traffic, and that's an impossibility from Coney Island to City Island, it would take you two hours and you'd be in... More

Very relaxing, tranquil, and a nice spot to unwind and release. Gaze at the waters and the structures by the Long Island Sound. See the bridges. Frequent the restaurants and shoppes, come here to be free. See the birds...

Because we LOVE to 'get away' and come here. We just love to park (but beware there are many no-park zones!) and walk these unique streets. At the end of every side street there's a private beach. You can approach and enjoy the views. There's also a new little park overlooking the "Potter's Cemetery" island. They say the seafood and... More

Almost like a trip to New England. Picturesque and very walkable.. Large choice of many excellent eateries for a meal or a snack. A relaxing day.
