Governors Island Governors Island, New York, New York, United States

Kick-off spring in Governors Island

The only way to get to Governors Island is by ferry, and you can take your bike, but not your car, so just take the train to the pier near the Staten Island Ferry terminal. Also, they have a bar with beer, other drinks, and snacks, but I much prefer to pack a picnic and head over to where they have all the hammocks (though you have to get there early to snag one) and chill out. When they hosts the free concerts, I feel like I've won the lottery. It's such an awesome New York City experience...and it's free!
