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.
