    Come on a sunny summer day and enjoy exploring and relaxing on this little paradise. You don't really need to hire bikes, just spend a few hours walking around.

    Best green space in the city and never crowded, not even on days with big events. Picnic point and hammock grove are delightful. Please get more food options!

    Beautiful park away from the hustle of NYC. We rented bikes which got stolen so I'd recommend also renting locks

    Good for a day out. Long walks. Bikes - Citibikes and surreys for groups - to hire to ride round the island. Lots of ATMs, food, drink on the island.

    They did a beautiful job restoring this place after Sandy. Come on a weekday and avoid the crowds, so you can slide on the slides without children judging you.

    Avoid "NYC Ferry" ferries. They don't empower employees w/ important info like "buying a ticket doesn't mean you will get on the ferry time you are waiting in line for". Polite inquiry yielded 0.

    I feel like this spot is *almost* there. New hills are a great addition and don't miss on the slides tucked away in the back (adults and kids alike). Great day trip. Bring a picnic!

    Easy day trip from Manhattan or Brooklyn. The ferry takes 7 minutes and costs $2 round trip. Bring your bike or easily rent there. A nice city escape!

    Always check for the special events. Still great on its own.

    Rent bikes here $15/hour or $30/day to enjoy the entire island. They also offer Citibike if you are a member.

    An under appreciated outing. Fun art that changes up and super easy to get to from lower Manhattan or dumbo for a few bucks. You can bring a bike, citibike, or just walk. Bring a blanket and a book.

    NYC's best idea-this National & Public Park space partnership. Have loved visiting over the past 6 or 7 years watching it grow and develop.

    🇫🇷 - J'y suis allé pendant un festival de Jazz 🎷 (à la grande surprise). Très grand et la vue est sublime. Une partie de l'île est inintéressante (en construction) mais le reste est sympathique !

    Rent a bike and ride around the island. It used to be a military fort, but now the houses are empty. Enjoy the parks and the views.

    June 11th: Finally, a use for that flapper dress you bought for Halloween. Sip gin rickeys and do the Charleston at the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governors Island. Mehr erfahren

    If you're looking for a place to relax, go here when the sun is shining and just hang out on the chairs. I had a great time, found the much needed silence in New York.

    Take the East River Ferry from Williamsburg for the views of the south of Manhattan, and give yourself a couple of hours to walk around before heading back.

    Better than Central Park. Great place to get away from the city on a weekend. Go early and beat the rush that comes closer to noon.

    Great for picnics, but there are lots of food trucks on the island now if you don't wanna carry a bunch of stuff. Bring your bikes or rent a bike and go biking all around the perimeter! Nice views.

    Get out of heat island Manhattan and enjoy breeze and shade of trees and grasses. Island has been renovated and changing. You might see different scene on island.
