Virtual Exploration of City Island, the “Cape Cod” of New York
Why schlep all the way to Massachusetts when you can get a taste of Cape Cod right here in NYC?
Join New York Adventure Club as we explore the village of City Island, a small seaside community at the edge of New York City (located just beyond Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx) that was once the location of a thriving oyster business and boat-building industry.
Led by longtime City Island resident Barbara Burn Dolensek, this experience of one of New York’s most unique communities will include:
- The history of City Island, and how its been home to everything from mulberry orchards, to oystering, to boat building
- A look at City Island’s most notable and historic buildings, including rare photos of one of City Island’s most stunning private waterfront properties built by the second-in-command at Tammany Hall
- City Island in film & television, and behind-the-scenes stories of their time on the island
- What it’s like to live on City Island, and the difference between residents who are considered “clam diggers” or “musselsuckers”
Afterward, we’ll have a Q&A with Barbara — any and all questions about City Island are welcomed and encouraged!
