    Great place to get away from the city for a day! Lots to do, including: art exhibits, biking, hammocks, picnics, food trucks, views of the Freedom Tower, views of the Statue of Liberty and much more.

    Beautiful island with lots to do. Free bike riding from 10a-12p everyday. Wonderful view of the city skyline, liberty island and Ellis island. There's food, parks, hammocks, and baseball fields.

    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.

    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.

    Catching The Jazz Age Lawn Party during the summer is a must! Come dance to authentic 20s music in the middle of the park, dress up with the other +700 who come out, and have a drink on the lawn.

    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!

    A short ferry ride from near Battery Park takes you to the traffic free paradise of Governors Island. 7 miles of great views & historic buildings. A cool place to relax for a few hours and ride bikes!

    Best for day concerts and festivals. Gets a little unbearable at night because of 1) spotty phone service 2) even harder to find your friends because of spotty phone service and now it’s dark too.

    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.

    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.

    Free ferry over and back. Great for families with lots of running room for the kiddies. If you didn't bring a picnic, take advantage of the delicious food trucks. There is also a beer garden.

    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.

    🇫🇷 - 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 !

    An increasingly popular place to see live music, especially famous DJs. Catch a ferry out here, and you'll be rewarded with amazing views of downtown Manhattan.

    Governors Island has played key roles in civil war, revolution and two world wars. Now it’s famous for relaxing, picnicking, strolling and cycling. Get there by ferry, maybe explore by kayak.

    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.

    The island is only open to the public for a few months every year. Bike riding, concerts, beach parties, picnics, and free rides around the island. Not a lot of food choices here so bring your own.

    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.

    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!

    bring your bike and go around the island. the best swingset in the world is there and it faces the statue of liberty. security is tight on the island, so don't try anything stupid.

    Best for an escape from the city, w/o committing to a real commute. Our tip: Take a bike with you on the ferry to tour the entire island. Visit the girls & boys room before you go! Trust us on this.

    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.

    Bring a plastic trash bag, cut to open flat, a large blanket (like 5x7), an umbrella that you can stick in the ground, sun screen, a basket of food (or at least $50 cash for food), and 1920 clothes!

    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.

    The island's name stems from British colonial times when the colonial assembly reserved the island for the exclusive use of New York's royal governors.

    Beautiful place, but not anything you can't recreate in Central Park. I'll go for an event, but not just on my own accord.

    Grab some food truck treats, take in the view of lower Manhattan, and take a nap on the grass in front of some abandoned houses. New York at its weirdest/finest.

    Head over to the food court or the East Ferry Terminal for totally free, solar-powered charging stations! Works with iPhone 4, 5, micro USB, and if you have a cable of your own you can plug in & go!
