City Island, The Bronx

City Island is a small island in The Bronx that feels as if it should be somewhere up in New England. It only has one main street and is narrow enough to be able to see the water in two directions from most intersections. The main road deviates between charming and cheesy...however I'll save the cheese (and of course-the food) for tomorrow's post.Pelham Cemetary is right on the water and has some really old tombstones that are in great shape- too bad they lock the gate, I would have loved to go further in.
Loads of old houses on the leafy sidestreets.

Many of the cross streets dead ended at little beaches with no trespassing signs. Hard to believe this one was taken in New York City but the skyscrapers are right there in the background:
