Village by the Sea in NYC
Island was once home to a major shipping and yachting industry,
populated with mostly blue-collar workers. Its boats were often
winners of the America's Cup, the world's premier yachting championship.
the shipyards are now closed down, there are still many yachting
clubs and marinas.
City Island has developed into valuable waterfront property, many
of its residents fear the islands identity will be lost.
In their own ways, they are fighting to preserve their village
by the sea.
