City Island

City Island was first established as an English settlement in 1865 as a supply stop between Manhattan and northern ports. It continued to be an important shipping and yachting center throughout the 18th and 19 centuries. Since World War II, City Island has been home to yacht clubs, boat makers, sail makers, sailing schools, marinas, fishing boats, and marine supply and repair shops. Today it continues to be a nautical community, but also serves as an oasis of seafood cuisine and historic buildings in Eastchester Bay.
