City Island is a tiny place, located beyond Pelham Bay in the northern part of the Bronx. It became an English settlement in 1685, and was used as a supply point for schooners traveling from Manhattan. Now the island is filled with yacht clubs, sailing schools, marinas, sail makers, and some great seafood restaurants. Enjoy the water, fresh air, and art galleries on the island. For those interested in the history of Native Americans, a Siwanoy Indian burial ground can be found at the island's highest point. Access the island from the City Island Rd bridge.
