NYC Island Getaways

Attraction

It's not too early to plan summer outings in New York. In fact, most of Gotham's most popular summer events and special warm-weather attractions like Governors Island are now open for the 2017 season.

Speaking of islands, we can't think of a better getaway than taking a ferry to an oasis off New York Harbor or riding a boat down the East River. Since summer is the best season for the outdoors, we've taken the liberty to list three can't-miss islands. These are our favorites.
