City Island Nautical Museum
City Island, a small maritime community in the northeast Bronx, is famed for its maritime history and specifically its yacht-building past. Access to the island is limited by a small bridge and has kept much of this nautical hub from inappropriate development. The City Island Nautical Museum is housed in a school building that was designed by C.B.J. Snyder in 1897 and is now on the National Register of Historic Places and a designated NYC landmark. In addition to displaying and maintaining the permanent collection and mounting temporary exhibitions, the volunteer staff provides tours for visiting school groups and organizations interested in City Island.
