Take the no. 6 train to its last stop, Pelham Bay Park. Then transfer to City Bus Bx29 toward hidden-treasure City Island. During Colonial times, City Island was known as Minneford Island, which reflected the area's connection to its traditional owners, the Sinawoy Minneford tribe. Today City Island is connected to the mainland by a 600-foot-long bridge that takes you from parkland to fishing village. The island itself is a little over a mile long and a quarter of a mile wide and houses native Bronxites, whose heritage on the island can be traced back more than 150 years. On City Island, marinas dot the tiny coast. City Island also offers an abundance of top-quality seafood restaurants.
