While weekends in the Hudson Valley and Long Island are always a great choice, just getting there can be a pain; and so many New Yorkers don’t even realize that you don’t need to leave the city (or break the bank) to escape the city. City Island is the perfect location for a day-trip, weekend getaway, or permanent home away from the hustle and bustle typically associated with New York City. Known for its seafood restaurants, City Island sits along the Long Island Sound and boasts more than 30 restaurants, including big ones like the Lobster Box and smaller, more eclectic places like Artie’s Steak and Seafood, the City Island Diner, Bistro SK, and the Black Whale.
