Arties Seafood one of the best seafood places on City Island. King crab legs to die for.. Many other dishes are just as good but I recommend the crab legs with melted butter. Yummy

If there was just one great thing about city island that would make you say "that's why I like coming here and I don't mind the traffic , I don't care that the bronx crowd is loud, I like my seafood extra greasy and tasteless............" but there isn't, and even the views from most restaurants is Not beautiful rather old...

I have been coming to City Island since I was a kid, and it never gets old. It represents summer. Of all the restaurants, I prefer Johnny's -- the dive at the end -- because the food is good, and it doesn't claim to be more than what it is. That said, the other restaurants are good as well.

See and learn about Hart Island, just to the east. Many of the restaurants are for tourists, but the Black Whale and a few other local spots are... More

If you worked all week in the Bronx and need a break, try a peaceful day trip to City Island. We visited this quaint village on a dreary Saturday afternoon in April. We strolled down the main street and were able to see water on both sides. We went in and out of several little antique shops, art galleries and... More
