There are other places more interesting but i enjoyed feeding the geese by the water. Sitting on a bench meditating with an ice cream cone in hand by the water while watching the geese is truly blissful.

This is the place for seafood. Seafood restaurants everywhere. The competition between them must be fierce because each one that I've been to pours it on.

Great Fresh seafood at so many restaurants from top dining to casual summer fun food. Fun desserts ! Sit at waterfront restaurants and eat the freshest most delicious seafood and /or fabulous Italian. Want a burger or a hot pastrami sandwich? You can get that too. Always a fun time.

A quick little escape out of the Bronx with the calming sea air and tranquility. Just really relaxing and a great place to select from different restaurants for great dining experiences. Whenever I get the chance I definitely will return as I've been going there for about 5/6 years now since moving to NYC.

Excellent fried shrimp at Tony's Pier with a nice view. Summer weekends are a nightmare going on and off the island. All other times well worth the trip.

If you love seafood, this is the place for you. From the very high end restaurants to the inexpensive yet very popular Johnny's Reef at the end the food is always great. It's also a great place to sight see and relax in nice weather.

I have been going to Tonys for over 15 years! Before, and after the remodel. The food is great! sit either indoors, or outdoors. Place can get packed at times, but with food like theirs why wouldnt it be? I recommend it to everyone! Enjoy

So nice! We'd never been to City Island & we were staying in the Bronx. The hotel recommended goijg to check it out. What a great little town. They said it was busy in the summer but it was still pretty to see. Most of the restaurants were open & walked down to the water which was a gorgeous view.... More
