I just got back from Governors Island. It was an enjoyable day. I just showered and am now relaxing with a cup of coffee and Miles Davis on the turntable as I squeeze out the last few hours of the weekend. Here are a few quick pics:
I took this south of Fort Jay looking north toward Manhattan. The Army and Coast Guard personnel who return talk about how they had the best of both worlds when stationed on the island; the island had the feel and security of small town America, but with the excitement and cultural benefits of New York City just a ten minute boat ride away.
This was the view from the table where I was distributing the free tickets for the castle tour. The courtyard is open to all, but access to the roof is by guided tour only. The first boat of the day had not arrived yet, which is why there is no one here.
Governors Island is one of America’s special places. There is still two full months left in the season.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
