  • Cute little town. Went on a weekday, can't imagine going during the weekend. Had late lunch at seafood restaurant at the end of town. Huge place with very good food, little pricey but worth it. Quality and quantity very impressive.
  • City island is a great place to bike or walk to through the Pelham Bay Park area. I love going there and it has really gorgeous views of the city and the bay. It's a nice retreat for people always busy with the city life. During any holiday, driving to city island is a pain in the rear because there's only one bridge in and out of the place and parking spots are not many. Once ate at the restaurant at the very end of the island and boy it was expensive!!! Not worth the price.
  • Love the small town vibe on an island just off one of the biggest metropolis(es?) in the country. Best of both worlds less than an hour from each other. Insider secret: Valentine's Day and Mother's Day are the busiest days on the island (TONS of seafood places), plan accordingly. I'm talking reservations for restaurants, plenty of travel time (hitting gridlocked traffic while getting on the island is normal. You have to cross 2 bridges to get there), ample time to look for parking.. If you think you've got enough, trust me, you need more. (Although, I will say that many of the restaurants have their own parking lots but sometimes they get full, too) It is an island that's only about a mile long.
  • Awesome place to get away from the crowded city area. It’s a small island (and comparatively more traffic signals.). For the city people, it is a quick good place for relax. There are some restaurants and tourist spots there. Parking is tight in this area.
  • In life they said there are good better and there’s best but this is the ultimate this is the greatest
