Summering on City Island

New, 5 comments

The Bronx Overall EDC is launching a new marketing campaign to rebrand City Island as "a Nantucket fishing village in the city" and draw tourists and Manhattanites to the gritty enclave. The Chamber of Commerce president designed new promotional cards proclaiming "Martha's Vineyard with a Bronx Accent," citing attractions like horseback riding, miniature golf, bed-and-breakfasts and the beach, but none of these are actually on City Island; the Chamber wants to create a "City Island Area" that includes the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum and Split Rock Golf Course in Pelham Bay Park across the bridge. Will you be summering on City Island? [NYP]
