Paul took this photo of Lady Liberty on the ferry ride back to Manhattan after an afternoon on Governor’s Island.
Governor’s Island has become our go-to place for fun in the city. The short ferry ride costs $3 a person, which guarantees incredible views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. Once there, we recommend renting a bicycle and cruising around the island. Afterwards, grab a seat at Island Oyster to bask in the glorious view of Manhattan’s skyline. A glass of wine and a dozen oysters makes for an unforgettable day in New York City.
Governor’s Island is open from May 1-October 31, so you only have a few more days to check it out before they close for winter. If that’s not in the cards for you, check out their website here, and don’t forget to put it on your list for next summer!
