A City Island Wedding
The wedding of two good friends in New York is what prompted our trip there during the last week of September. It also was the perfect excuse to visit a part of the city that I'd never before seen: City Island.
City Island is a part of the Bronx a good hour from where we lived in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. While you can see the Manhattan skyline in the distance, the vibe is about as far from Times Square as you can get. It feels much more like a New England fishing village. In fact, it's known for its seafood.
The ceremony was held at the City Island Yacht Club, on a pier overlooking sailboats and the sunset. It was a beautiful setting for two wonderful people and a lovely way to see a corner of New York that I otherwise probably never would have.
