@Governors Island

Summer is here, most of us are vaccinated, and it’s time to enjoy the pleasures of outdoor fun. There’s no better escape from the urban noise than to catch the Ferry on South Street, Lower Manhattan and head to the Island that once resided the Governor and also place for the most secured prison in the country back a century ago. A great, accessible and spacious place for relaxing, hiking, cycling, sports and sightseeing, among other healthy activities, Governors Island hosts events and festivals throughout the season, most of them for free. This weekend visitors will be offered a variety of events such as the special live performance program “June Rites!” featuring original music by renowned percussionist Mauro Refosco and Baiano instrumentalist and singer Gustavo Di Dalva, a forum discussing topics of social importance hosted by the American Indian Community House, and the indie-music, folk and pop showcase “Porch Stomp” reuniting various artists exploring the city throughout their music, poetry and performances. Families looking for a different eating experience can try the Picnic at Dinner Time provided by Team MP which includes a special boat ride departing from Tribeca. Info: www.govisland.com
