8. You Shouldn’t Eat the Shellfish from there

Sea Shore restaurant on City Island

City Island is known for its seafood restaurants, yet the New York State Department of Health has declared shellfish, specifically “crab or lobster tomalley and cooking liquid” (soft, green stuff), unsafe to eat due to PCBs and other contaminants in the water. By law, the seafood must come from somewhere else. Weakfish, Bluefish, the American eel, and Stripped bass are also recommended in dosages.
