City Island Nautical Museum

Let’s spend a day in a nearby marine community. A resort just a subway & bus ride away–a great day getaway at City Island.

We will begin with the history of Ann Hutchinson to  Thomas Pell to today. We’ll discover who is a “clamdigger” or a “musselsucker”.  What were all the names for this community. Our tour will begin in front of Thomas Pell house and it will include a visit the Nautical Museum.

There is great nautical history here from cultivating oysters, the building of winning yatchs, and finally great views of Manhattan and more. We will visit some of the small gardens which honor some of their residents. We will check out some of their landmark homes and so much more. We will also check some of the homes used in some very famous films.

Come join us as we explore this secret community in the Bronx.
