As with all the sites selected in the competitive process for Partners in Preservation funding, a process dependent upon your votes, the City Island Nautical Museum has many needs.

City Island belongs to New York City, and specifically this island beyond Pelham Bay Park is part of the borough of the Bronx. City Island has a rich nautical history. A walk down this seaport community confirms the dominance of all things nautical and seafaring. There are high masts of many boats moored in yacht clubs, a number of seafood restaurants, and antique stores specializing in the maritime trade.
