Best Place to Water-Ski (2008)

City Island

Windsurfing and jet skis have conspired to all but eliminate the more archaic endeavor of water-skiing. Those who are old enough to remember the feeling of wobbling uneasily at the end of a rope while inhaling the sweet perfume of diesel fuel should head on up to the docks at City Island, a throwback to the days of maritime New York. Though primarily a launching spot for deep-sea fishing charters, with some persistence you can find a boat and water-ski gear to rent for the day, and party like it's 1964.
