Visiting Governors Island

Last weekend we hopped on a ferry at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6 to travel to Governors Island, a former military base, located 800 yards away from lower Manhattan.  The free ferry zipped us there in around seven minutes (described by Lucia as SO COOL!!).  In addition to our water travel excitement, the kids also enjoyed exploring Figment’s art installations.  My husband and I loved people watching at the Jazz Age Lawn Party, and we’re all still talking about the hour we spent on our rented quadcycle.

I’m sharing more details over at Kidsy, an exciting new NYC resource for planning family activities.  I’m excited to be a contributor.
