Escape to City Island – a neighborhood that time seems to have forgotten. This quirky New York town has been likened to a New England fishing village. Return to another time and explore the rich nautical and revolutionary history of this charming town. The community was once a major boat building and yachting center with four Yacht Clubs and also played a part in early Bronx movie-making.
Your journey back in time includes visits to:
- A sea captain's house
- Johnny's Reef Restaurant
- The Yacht Clubs
- The trading site for the early settlers and the local Native Americans
- The pilot house
- The City Island Museum.
This unique island has been advertised as the "coolest" spot within the city limits, where people flock for great seafood, pleasure boating, the art galleries, the gift and craft shops and the many antique shops. It has also been featured as the #5 island in Conde Nast Traveler’s list of “101 Islands We Love”.
Meeting Location: The southern tip of City Island (Bronx, NY). Exact meeting location details will be provided immediately upon purchase of tickets.)
- A snack.
- Although we may stop for light refreshments along the way, they are not included in the price of your tour.
