Tour | City Island: A Picturesque Waterfront Community in the Bronx

WITH BARBARA BURN DOLENSEK

Once part of Westchester County, City Island in the Bronx has a rich history that includes fishing, farming, shipbuilding, sailmaking, the America’s Cup, and much more.

Stops include the City Island Nautical Museum, several sites on the National Register of Historic Places, a shady public park and soldiers’ memorial, and beautiful shoreline views of Long Island Sound.
