NYC's old-timey set—you know, the type who quotes Dorothy Parker liberally, owns more than one pair of suspenders and uses "bootleg" in reference to well-mixed cocktails rather than a cut of jeans—came out in force for Governors Island's annual Jazz Age Lawn Party. Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra set the mood, as revelers lined up to Charleston on the dance floor. Others eyed pristine 1920s cars, shopped vintage vendors, and promenaded around the grounds under pretty parasols and smartly styled cloches. If you missed it, mark you calendar for August 17 and 18, when the affair comes around again.
