"When the Dutch explorers first encountered New York, they missed Manhattan by a matter of yards, landing instead on a hickory-, oak- and chestnut tree-laden offshore island. Soon enough, the local Lenape Indians ceded its 172 acres to the new settlers—marking the official start of the State of New York. And then the British took over, turning this little island into home base for its royal governors—which is how it got its name, Governors Island. Fast forward to the 21st century, with much of the island open to the public every May through October, offering incredibly unspoil’t pristine greenery just a 10-minute ferry ride from Wall Street. Oh, and you can’t overlook the jaw-dropping panoramic views of Manhattan. Governors Island today has not only become New York’s quickest canoeing, zip-lining, rock-climbing, and picnicking getaway, it’s also the scene of open air summer galas. Such as a Poetry Festival; a lavish Dîner en Blanc, where guests wear all white; a rosé-wine-themed Pinknic revelry, where attendees dress in pink and white; and the notorious Jazz Age Lawn Party, with guests in flapper attire sipping ‘20s cocktails, and dancing the Charleston.
