On May 31st Governors Island opened up to the public for the summer. Today we took our push-bikes on the free ferry and crossed over the river into the Jazz Age. Michael Aranella and the Dreamland Orchestra were playing to an authentic and beautifully turned out crowd as we arrived.

Most of the old island homes are open for you to wander through.

There is also an outside sculpture exhibit presented by the Sculptors Guild, which has to be seen in amongst the grand and empty architecture.

It is amazing how much open space you can enjoy on the island. Picnic on the abandoned golf course anyone?
