While either visiting or dinner, City Island has the feel of being in a New England coastal town without leaving the city. The many restaurants have a variety of choices, but if you love seafood this is the place. Just be aware that is can get very crowded summer weekends and major holidays, give yourself extra time.

I have visited City Island pretty much bi-weekly...the atmosphere, its tranquility, as you are 'transported' to a community sorrounded by water, makes you feel as though you're in Cape Cod...in a boating & fishing community. In this fishing village, you must visit shops like "Captain Mike's Diving" you can learn scuba diving, book fishing excursions, and so much more. It has been at that location for over 27 years!...learning its history alone is mind boggling.
...and eateries like "The Lobster Box", Sammy's Fish Box", "Ohana Japanese Restaurant" are awesome. The church, the school, & businesses...its community is not harried like us on the other side of the City Island bridge...when you go, visit the little mom and pop businesses, where you can buy trinkets, your worms or tackle for fishing or wolf down dessert at the "Black Whale", and stop there, if only to gaze at a very old gnarled tree on its corner. A beautiful place!
