Visiting City Island is like a quick getaway to a quaint New England town. The main avenue is lined with antique shops, art galleries, cafes, restaurants, as well as boat yards, yacht clubs, sailing schools and a most unusual nautical museum.
Parking is readily available on the side streets.
City Island is easily reached by public transportation.
The best way to get here is to take the #6 subway train north to Pelham Bay Park, which is the last stop; then transfer to City Bus BX 29 towards City Island.
Or take the #5 or #4 or #6 trains to Pelham Parkway or Fordham Road stations and transfer to City Bus 12 (make sure to catch the bus marked City Island, not Orchard Beach).
