For many years, it has been a well-known fact of life for Bronxites that when the weather gets better- traffic starts to accumulate on City Island.  Many of the Island's destination locations are restaurants and they provide world-class dining experience for visitors from around the world, employment opportunities for City Islanders and Bronxites as well as millions of sales tax dollars every year to the City and State of New York.

The City of New York, namely NYPD, is usually well prepared for holidays such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Easter as well as the peak months of July and August when NYPD School Safety Officers are reassigned to augment the City Island and Orchard Beach Summer Traffic Details.   That being said, as many residents know, the “Summer Season” starts well before July, usually in mid to late April and extends into the later weeks of September.  Thus, our Community is being provided a two-month solution to a five-month problem.

Therefore, we are petitioning the City of New York and Police Department's Administration at 1 Police Plaza (NYPD) to augment the traffic resources of the 45th Precinct so that they can provide the traffic detail that City Island deserves.  Both residents and visitors deserve to be able to travel to our community and for traffic to be safe and well regulated.  The NYPD, and the 45th Precinct in particular, have shown that with the proper resources they are able to provide such a safe environment for all who wish to visit City Island.  We’re asking City Hall to give them the resources to make this a reality.
