City Island's Annual Blessing of The Fleet

News

The weather held up long enough to allow the different religious representatives from several of City Island's congregations to gather at one of our local marinas. They assembled there for the annual blessing of the fleet, along with officials from The City Island Power Squadron and members of the American Legion Hall, located at 550 City Island Avenue.

The Co-Op City Annual Fair is an event, where residents, and other entrepreneurs, sell their products, this includes, delicious foods, clothing, jewelry. This community attraction does not receive the recognition, which it deserves. Vendors will be selling some fantastic cuisine, and City Island Images hopes that Bronx residents come out and stroll around, take a look at some of the wares, and taste some of the delicious foods.

STOP PLAYING WITH OUR SAFETY, MR. MAYOR

Issue

It appears that every time it looks like our City Island Ladder Company 53 is going to be eliminated, activists members from our local community save it from the chopping block, but threatening and bullying our citizens is no way to treat City Islanders, Mr. Mayor.

Why do you think that hundreds of City Island residents converged on Ladder 53 at 169 Schofield Street and then again at Lido Restaurant, calling for Ladder Company 53 to remain open 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week, 365 days a year?

GOOD NEWS FOR CITY ISLANDERS

News

Twenty NYC fire companies, including three in The Bronx, have been saved from proposed cuts citywide.
Mayor Bloomberg's budget proposal for 2012 included these fire companies, which were slated for closing.

Among these saved companies is our very own ladder #53 company right here on City Island.
