Photos: Governors Island opening weekend

New York's summer oasis welcomes art seekers, old-timey baseball players and foodies to its shores.

Mother Nature offered blue skies and balmy temperatures to kick off the summer season, and New Yorkers rose to the occasion as thousands took the seven-minute ferry ride to Governors Island. Across the harbor, revelers were greeted with smoked meats and lobster rolls (part of the 5 Boro PicNYC), Cooper-Hewitt exhibition "Graphic Design—Now in Production," 19th-century-era baseball games and lots of lawns for lounging. We can only hope that the weather will cooperate for similar weekends throughout the summer.
