    City Island this way!!!

    There are several walking tours throughout the city. City Island is a popular route for both walking tours and bicycle tours. There is only one road onto the island. Try coming in on the bike/walk/rollerblade path. The path goes all through Pelham Bay Park and comes right up to City Island. Walk for your health and then sit down to fried shrimp and a pina colada :-)

    Take the FDR Drive to the Triboro Bridge. Turn onto the Bruckner Expressway. Stay on 95 North to Exit 8B, 'City Island.' Take a right after the drawbridge (there is a sign) and take the second turn at the traffic circle. Once you're over the bridge, you're here.
