Hello New York.
Just a short jump from NYC is City Island in the Bronx. Check out this Gothamist article, which gives a pretty good overview. The island is only 1.5 miles long, so you can easily walk it. Water access is difficult, but we went to the Harlem Yacht Club (don’t have to be a member) and sat on the deck overlooking the harbor and had a cocktail. We also had a drink in The Snug on City Island Avenue (surprisingly good Bloody Mary) and chatted with a local man (a true clam digger) who gave us a little townie flavor.
There are also a few quirky antique and curiosity shops that are worth a visit. Explore it for yourself. It’s a great NY adventure.
highly recommend. what a strange, strange place.
Katy, let’s just make it official. We can be friends!

The beauty of the Tumblr dashboard…this popped up in my dash and brought me back to my first job post-college, at a tiny firm doing PR for classical musicians. Sumi Jo was my first (and best!) client.
