Remember in May when you were like, "I'm totally going to Governors Island this summer—I'm gonna ride bikes, drink from a flask, think about some deep shit, smoke my Camel straights, and ride my own melt." Well, DID YOU? Because after this coming weekend, the island is closed for business until next May. Which basically means this is also your last chance to kick back in a hammock in NYC for awhile.
The Governors Island blog has a list of things you can do to make the most of this precious remaining time we have with the Island—you can ride a bike for free in the mornings, check out "A Portrait of Marina Abromovic" in Fort Jay, and on the penultimate day: a Kite Festival!
The Island closes on Sunday, September 28th, and is open Monday-Friday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
