NEW YORK.

Shelter Island.

By Maya Villiger

Just a few hours away from downtown NYC, Shelter Island is a welcome escape from the thriving metropolis.

A charming weekend destination with lovely horse riding. Just three hours drive from NYC and you feel a million miles away. Surrounded by water this island township is a welcomed sight after time in the bustling Big Apple. Given the population quadruples in summer, this island haven has become a popular destination in the warmer months.
