Wag! Walkers know City Island

City Island is a beautiful patch of land that is accessed via the Bronx. The Bronx and Pelham Parkway runs from the east into Pelham Bay Park. From there, the road juts out onto the peninsula and bridge that takes you to the island. From the west, you can access the island via Shore Road from New Rochelle. The neighborhood is located in Eastchester Bay so is protected from the Atlantic Ocean by Brooklyn and Long Island. For this reason, it is not affected by disastrous weather fronts such as Hurricane Sandy in the same way as other New York City beachside resorts are.

In terms of pet amenities, you’re very limited on the island itself. While it appears that this harbor and beachside resort is ideal for our canine friends, you’d be better off heading into the city for all the grooming supplies and veterinary care you require. Try looking in the nearby Bronx or New Rochelle. 

What is the terrain like in City Island?

City Island was spared the devastation of Hurricane Sandy partly because of its slightly higher elevations when compared to most waterside harbors. When hearing this, you’d be right to expect to see the odd cliff or perhaps an island that peaks in the middle with a mountaintop. This is not the case at all, in fact, the land is incredibly flat. As with almost all terrain, there will be some slight minor inclines, but you’d have to be pretty unfit to describe the area as particularly hill. Think beachside boardwalks rather than challenging hikes

In terms of the terrain, while the area has a very natural beachside feel to it and residential homes with plenty of garden space, it is still very much full to the brim with buildings to house the local residents. It’s a small island, jam-packed with roads that stretch all the way to the coastline, so can be described as artificial.  

How many greenways are there in City Island?

There are limited greenways on City Island simply because it is a small neighborhood. There are, however, a few parks and gardens of note. Ambrosini Field is located on the east of the island and reaches the shoreline. It is a small park that offers great views of the harbors and waterways. On the opposite side of the island, you have the City Island Wetlands which is a nature reserve protecting the animals that nest in the bay.

The biggest greenway is Pelham Bay Park. In order to get onto the island, you must drive through this park on City Island Road. This is actually New York’s largest greenway with a whole host of biking trails, beaches, and habitats to choose from. This is a great place to take your pooch for a run around, making City Island ideal for those who enjoy long walks and a natural environment but still want the city life close by.
