The Jazz Age Lawn Party 2022 is one of the most spectacular things to do in summer on gorgeous Governors Island. Step onto the ferry—and back in time—with thousands of revelers dressed to the 1920s-nines. During the event, enjoy live music from Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra, learn the Charleston and sip cocktails and have a picnic in the sunshine. It’s one of the best things to do outside (besides hitting the best New York beaches and rooftop bars in NYC, of course).
