CITY ISLAND - The City Island Chamber of Commerce is trying to diversify the community's image.

City Island Director of Tourism Maria Caruso led several out-of-town hotel concierges on a guided tour with hopes of squashing perceptions that the island is all about seafood.

The group visited the City Island Nautical Museum, as well as the Bartow-Pell Mansion.

Residents say a spike in tourism would definitely be advantageous, especially toward local businesses.
