The unknown, yet famous, City Island.

Numer­ous films, tele­vi­sion shows, and com­mer­cials have been filmed on City Island. Films include But­ter­field 8 star­ring Eliz­a­beth Tay­lor; Long Day’s Jour­ney Into Night, with Katharine Hep­burn); Awak­en­ings, with Robert De Niro and Robin Williams; Love Is All There Is, with Angelina Jolie; and A Bronx Tale, again with De Niro. Michael Dou­glas was here for Don’t Say a Word and Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenen­baums was filmed at Del­mours Point.

This clip is part of a series of 1-minute video vignettes we shot in the Bronx spon­sored by a grant from the New York City Mayor’s Office of Media and Enter­tain­ment (MOME) and pro­duced by stu­dents and fac­ulty at Lehman College.
