New York in summer? The city gains a boundless energy once the sun shines bright behind the shy clouds. Thus, some of the most popular New York attractions provide an endless list of things to do outside. From rooftop movies and free dance parties in Gotham’s best parks to music festivals. Insert Governors Island- if you crave an escape from the city that won’t cost you an arm and a leg, head to the ever-changing urban oasis of Governors Island, NY which combines park, concert venue, adult playground and outdoor art space into a single lovely haven for adventure.
Although easily accessible by ferry from Manhattan and Brooklyn, Governors Island has long been an afterthought when it comes to outdoor activities. This summer, (June 30-July 1) Pinknic once again will welcomed thousands of guests, all dressed in pink and white, to take a seat on our rosé-colored picnic blankets to rosé all day with friends. With unobstructed views of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan skyline offering the perfect backdrop, Pinknic has quickly become a New York City summer tradition. This year, the festival’s third, also includes a Ferris wheel, plus a garden area with hammocks and a pool for those who purchase VIP tickets.
