For those not in the know (which I think would be basically anyone outside NYC and probably two-thirds of people who live here) Governors Island is a park situated in New York Harbor, about halfway between Lower Manhattan and Red Hook, Brooklyn. It used to be a Coast Guard base, but was later abandoned and then sold to the city for the sum of $1.00.
|They couldn't let me make a counter offer? I'd have gone to at least a buck seventy-five.|
Along with Coney Island and sweating like pigs on the subway platforms, Governors is kind of a summer tradition now. This year I took the opportunity to get dressed up to visit the island. I thought it would be fun and plus there's something I just love about wearing a dress on a boat.
We explored the island and of course got tons of pictures too!
|It's a beautiful spot, but the wind means forgetting about having a good hair day.|
