Event description

Description

Why schlep all the way to Massachusetts when you can get a taste of Cape Cod right here in NYC?

Join New York Adventure Club for a special access trip to City Island, a small community at the edge of New York City located just beyond Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx that was once home to a thriving shipbuilding and oyster industry.

Led by a City Island resident, this experience of one of New York’s most unique communities will include:

  • A rare visit to one of City Island’s most historic waterfront properties, which has been featured in movies including The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) and Long Day’s Journey Into Night (1962)
  • A walking tour of downtown City Island with a longtime City Island resident, who will highlight its most historic buildings
  • A short tour of the Nautical Museum, which focuses on the island’s development throughout the centuries
  • A discussion around what it's like to live on City Island, and the difference between residents who are considered "clamdiggers" or "musselsuckers"

*Please bring a water bottle and comfortable pair of shoes as we’ll be doing a lot of walking!
