Hello. Thanks to prior help we have booked Beacon at end of month. Parents with two young boys. Thinking to meet daughter at Washington Square on Sunday, and then to Brooklyn for ferry/water taxi to Governors Island. I heard this is free. I heard you can take from Pier 6 near Atlantic/Columbia but also heard something about a Fulton launch closer to Brooklyn Bridge. Besides clearing that up, what do you think about...
best subway station nearby?
renting a bike on Governors Island?
returning on another ferry, perhaps to the South Street Seaport?
doing this as an alternate, pleasant way to get views of Statue of Liberty, Manhattan & Brooklyn Bridge?
Another reason we're considering this is that it is near daughter's old neighborhood & I'm sure she has some thoughts, too. Would love any thoughts. Thanks.
