Slap on your spats and practice the Charleston because the Jazz Age Lawn party returns to Governors Island. Sip on Prohibition-era cocktails or a glass of bubbly and none of the back-alley hooch of the day. Food vendors will be on hand to keep your Lindy Hop hoppin’.
There are so many things to do on Governors Island that you could easily spend your entire summer there. The car-free oasis is best known for The Hills (one of city’s best parks offering unreal 360-degree views of New York harbor), but it’s also home to highly-recommended events such as the Jazz Age Lawn Party, a pink-and-white rosé festival dubbed Pinknic, FIGMENT NYC outdoor art fair and more. The island continues to grow and expand too. In the past year, Governors Island set up several beer gardens and new eateries as well as a zip-lining and rock-climbing course. Get ready to load up your calendar with all the amazing events coming up starting in May 2018.
