On The Sound is City Island’s first condo development in 15 years and is a 43 unit project on 5 acres in gated community on the Long Island Sound.
With units listing from $488,000 to $988,000, this is easily one of the most expensive developments in The Bronx in a number for years.
The highest listings for one bedroom rentals all averaged at roughly $1,600 and, not surprisingly, all located in the South Bronx neighborhoods of Mott Haven, Melrose, Port Morris, and the Grand Concourse below 167th.

Needless to say, this isn’t sitting well with residents and home owners at one of the largest condo developments in the world. Residents have been organizing against this fee and have a rally scheduled for this coming Wednesday, February 10th, at 4pm at 2000 E Tremont Avenue.
Last year, Bronx Borough Developer, I mean President Ruben Diaz Jr called to study three Bronx rail yards for possible decking to spur further development throughout our borough.
Today he has issued the findings of the report which singles out the Concourse Yards in Bedford Park and nixing out the 149th Street yards in Melrose and Broadway Yards in Riverdale as currently logistically unfeasible.
If you have been living in New York City for the last several decades (since the early 1980s to be more precise) then you know who Jonathan Zizmor, MD is. He’s the famed dermatologist who’s subway ads have been splattered everywhere—and haven’t been changed much in as long as he’s been in business.
