Governor's Island is a fabulous NYC experience that is unique and rather "un NYC" It provides an experience that is off the beaten path, is fresh and a wonderful outing that starts as soon as you board the ferry. It feels like you are ambling through a small town yet there you are those fabulous views of the NYC skyline. It has open fields, bike paths and even a beach.
Great for families because the kids can run free is a fabulous bucolic setting. The price is right ( no charge at all) You can take a wonderful informative tour or just veg out.
It is easy to get to by public transportation ( #1 train to the last stop- South Ferry is the most direct )
