City Island is a little piece of New England in the northeastern most point of New York City. It is located in The Bronx on the Long Island Sound and is connected to the mainland by a small bridge. The island has a seafaring tradition dating back to the 18th century, with many of its inhabitants tracing their heritage back to those early days.

City Island hosts some of the finest seafood restaurants in New York City. On national holidays, these eateries are usually full of visitors who come to celebrate with their friends and familees.

During the summer months, thousands of people flock here to enjoy what the island has to offer, with its commercial strip on City Island Avenue, which runs the length of the island.

Many condos and housing units have been developed on City Island, which shows the family life attraction as a good, safe and quiet place to live in New York City.
