City Island Nautical Museum

Schedule: Saturdays and Sundays 1pm - 5pm


If you just want to escape to a small fishing village and eat fresh seafood, you can go to Island City, located in the Bronx, is connected to the mainland by a narrow bridge. Island City is an active boating community throughout the year. It measures 2.4 kilometers long and only half a kilometer wide, where we find restaurants, shops, galleries, yacht clubs, marinas and shipyards.

An interesting place to visit is the old school, where the Nautical Museum where we can see model boats, authentic sails, collection of photographs, books, newspapers, maps, arrowheads, works display includes a large relief map of the island.

We also found a shop where we can buy books, photographs, postcards and general nautical gifts.

Our advice:

  • The museum is free, if you find yourself close is a good idea to visit and surroundings to know a bit of nautical history.
