There are quite a few shops worth popping in and having a look about. There is a photo gallery that also sells jewelry, local craft and international treasures [Focal Point], a unique sandwich shop that also sells artwork and handcrafted jewelry [Starving Artist], and numerous antique shops.
Enjoy a walk down the avenue and go into the shops. Half of the fun is talking to the shop owners. You may miss something that will bring a lifetime of pleasure simply because you didn't just walk in and say hello.
What to buy: Nautical themed items are in abundance, but you can find anything from Tibetan prayer bells to old vinyl records and the victrola to play them on.
What to pay: This is NY and prices won't be basement bargains. Negotiating isn't common but if you're making a large purchase go for it.

Address: All together now - City Island Ave
When the weather gets warm; City Island gets packed. The streets are crowded, the traffic backs up and the wait in the restaurants can be unbearable. For this reason we avoid City Island in the summer months. We live close enough to enjoy City Island the rest of the year and not have to fight traffic and lines of people.
