As of the 2010 census the island had a population of 4,362. Its land area is 1.023 km2 (0.395 sq mi, or 252.835 acres).

The body of water between City Island and the even smaller (and uninhabited) Hart Island to the east is known as City Island Harbor. The small island adjacent to the northeast is High Island. The Stepping Stones Light, marking the main shipping channel into New York, is off the southern tip of the island, near the Long Island shore.
