Product Description
BX-10: "City Island" by Charlap Hyman & Herrero

A vortex-like shape represents City Island, the tiny Bronx island at the far west end of the Long Island Sound. The souvenir’s three-dimensional shape is an analog of City Island’s 1½ mile-long shorelines; its contours are rotated in cast concrete—and in reflection—to meet one another. The resulting abstraction from the island’s footprint is a singular, centripetal object evocative of its peculiar isolation within New York City. To get to the island, one must go by water or drive through Westchester County, north of the Bronx.

City Island’s geographic location at New York City’s extremes is reflected in its built environment, which more resembles a New England fishing village than the city to which its name refers, with diminutive, old clapboard structures and lobster houses lining its several roads. As the irregular silhouette of the souvenir suggests, City Island has maintained its natural, rugged borders, while most of New York’s waterfronts have not.

Beyond the confines of the concrete jungle, beyond the reach of gentrification, City Island is a world of its own within New York City—all the more reason why it owes to be visited and remembered.
