City Island, Pelham Cemetery and Hart Island

City Island is a small community at the edge of New York City located just beyond Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx and surrounded by the waters of the Long Island Sound and Eastchester Bay.

The shipbuilding industry on City Island prospered into the 20th century. During the First and Second World Wars, City Island produced minesweepers and tugboats, as well as many of the landing craft used in beach invasions. In the post-war period, yacht production continued to prosper and City Island has produced seven Americas Cup-winning yachts.

Orchard Beach and Pelham Bay Park

Once referred to as "The Riviera of the Bronx," Orchard Beach is a 1.1 mile long stretch of public beach located in Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx. Although the beach is surrounded by acres and acres of natural forest, marshlands and coastline, the beach is actually man-made.
