City Island Detour?


City Island traffic may soon be increased by new status of a Yacht Club that has been an institution for decades. The Stuyvesant Yacht Club may soon be leased, or sold, yo NYC Parks Department. This local yacht hub has been on the eastern end of Centre St. for almost a century.

Among the concerns is t he need for onsite parking. Concerns that a full-time concessionaire might compete with local businesses and bring much traffic or recreational nightlife like Dyckman Marina in Manhattan.

Simone Lageoles, SYC VP, said the property will continue being good, respectful and neighborly for the next ninety years.

There is much more to come on the traffic and the bridges in subsequent stories.... Stay tuned!

Good & Bad News


The good news is that City Island's new bridge will not have a toll. but, NY state officials have announced that Metropolitan Transportation Authority Bridges and Tunnels is set to strengthen toll evasion enforcement at its seven bridges and two tunnels in New York City. This plan aligns with a proposed New York State regulation to suspend the registrations of vehicles that repeatedly evade payment on toll crossings.
