Row, row, row your boat. . .
Water is good. It may not be as good as a martini or milk shake, but think of how thirsty and dry and dirty we’d all be without it!
To celebrate this fabulous liquid gift from mother nature, the Waterfront Alliance is hosting a City of Water Day from 10am to 4pm on Governors Island. Come on down to eat, drink and party for FREE! Ferry transit will be available all day (also FREE) from Lower Manhattan.
Highlights of the day will include:
• A symbolic and inspirational convergence of kayakers, boaters, sailors and ferry-riders onto Governors Island. New York Waterway and the New York Water Taxi will pick kids from across the city and bring them to the Island for this special day of fun, education and adventure.
• Boat parade of working vessels past and present including the retired fireboat John J. Harvey and the Seaport Museum’s tug W.O. Decker.
• Eco-tours of indigenous bird habitats hosted by NYC Audubon and a Hidden Harbor Tour hosted by the Working Harbor Committee.
• Fishing clinics with I Fish New York.
• Live music by Eric Bibb.
• Lecture on Fuel from Algae by CUNY professor.
• Car free biking. Bring your own wheels or rent.
If you’ve never been to Governors Island, it’s definitely a cool place to visit and the ferry ride alone is awesome with great views of lower Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
