Normally on any weekday afternoon, we like to call City Island, A Slice of NYC Paradise. In fact 14 out of 15 days, it is a very quiet and quaint island village with 4,555 residents, full of restaurants frequented by visitors on weekends who flock to nearby Pelham Bay Park and Orchard Beach.
Today was unfortunately day 14 as a 52-year-old woman was shot three times while working on the bridge crew and was pronounced #DOA at Jacobi Hospital. The woman died after being shot multiple times on City Island Avenue. The suspect was struck by a car while fleeing the scene on a bike.
