Living in the city that never sleeps really means that we must take extra good care of our health, so we can keep up with the fast pace of NYC life. But living on City Island gives me the best of both worlds. City Islanders have Einstein, Montifiore and Jacobi Hospitals nearby, not to mention that New York-Presbyterian Hospital of Columbia and Cornell benefits from their affiliation with two Ivy League medical schools and a reputation as one of the best teaching hospitals in the U.S., with top adult and pediatric specialties. Having some of the best hospitals in the country puts The Big Apple on the list of cities with top health care.
City Island, The Bronx as well as all of the other boroughs in NYC enjoys the status of having some of the best restaurants in the United States to — who else? — New York City. This is a no-brainer when you consider that NYC has more than 23,000 restaurants.
New York is tops for sheer variety of dining options. This melting pot of a city offers every kind of ethnic cuisine from the most excellent Spanish Restaurants, Seafood Dining, Jewish Delis and Dim Sum Cafeterias, to Falafel stands and Pizza joints in nearly each and every neighborhood.
