The City Island Chamber of Commerce Tourism Director Maria Caruso rolled out the welcome mat and hosted NYC Metropolitan area Hotel Concierges, Tour Guides and Travel Professionals to experience and enjoy the delights City Island, along with its its surrounding area have to offer the public at large. The all day even was a total success.

City Island is the the best kept secret in NYC and Maria's tour changed that, with a little help from her friends and the local press, which was also invited.
