One Lovely Day at the Governors's Island, New York City

Governor's Island NYC
Welcome to Governor's Island

Governor’s Island is indeed a piece of world of its own. With interesting history, dating back pre-dutch settlements era around the 15th century, this island was called ‘Pagganuck’ (or the nut island) before by the Native Americans of the Manhattan region.

Located not far from Brooklyn as well as Lower Manhattan, this lovely island has been used as venues of many events, including the recent #jazzagelawnparty we attended. 

It was a cool party indeed and we had so much fun.
Wearing 1920s-inspired costumes, dancing around with jazz age music, and having a picnic under the sun is indeed awesome.

Overlooking Manhattan and Brooklyn, this 172-acre island is well connected with NYC ferries. You have plenty of choices indeed in terms of transportation to reach the island.

When we went there, it was one fine day with perfect weather.

A bit hot but manageable.
And we managed to take pictures here and there, including at the Fort Jay and the lawns.
