Want to get away for a day? Spend the day having a picnic, riding bikes, and enjoying a fascinating art exhibit? Then visit Governors Island, the former military installation, a short ferry ride away. The Governors Island Alliance recently held a “Summer Gala” to raise funds and celebrate what has been accomplished to turn the island into a mecca for tourists and New Yorkers alike. The following photos are just a preview of everything that awaits visitors. (See story in Traveling Around).
