Window Views and doors too



Today's Window Views and doors too! Below is one of the colonial houses on City Island, Bronx, NY. Beautiful doors and windows in the afternoon sun!


Located on City Island Ave
City Island, Bronx, New York

The island is home to the Columbia University Sailing Team, whose fleet of dinghies is docked at City Island Yacht Club. The team comes from Manhattan to practice off the western shore of City Island three times a week. Fordham University's Sailing Team sails out of Morris Yacht and Beach Club.

In the novel Bluebeard, by Kurt Vonnegut, the character Dan Gregory states that his 80-foot (24 m) yacht, the Ararat, was dry-docked on City Island.

Many of the boats which competed and won in the America's Cup in years past were built in The Minneford Boat Yard on City Island.

The sailing team deserves to stay on that island, and that will certainly help them concentrate on their training. The house looks just like an American vintage home, and it seems to have seen its fair share of experiences along the way. The sunlight, though, made it look a bit younger than it truly is in that photo. :)
