Tucked away on Governors Island is a charming but deserted WWII-era movie theater left over from when the island was a military base. I used to wander in here as a kid on summer days. The theater has a cute little box office in front, and in its heyday you could see a double feature for $2. It’s not operational, but you can go in at your own risk. Free ferries leave from South Street in Manhattan and from Brooklyn Bridge Park every 30 to 60 minutes.
It’s a bit of tranquility, after the hectic pace of NYC. Accessible by tram from Brooklyn and lower Manhattan, go to govisland.com for info about events and how to travel there.
Free ferry from Lower Manhattan takes you to Governor's Island, a decommissioned Coast Guard Station, with places for riding bikes, picnics, restaurants, and seasonal art shows and exhibits. Great views of Lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty.
10 minute ferry ride to Governors Island. Car-free Bike rentals Food Trucks, Ice Cream Hammocks Great walking time
Built as a defensive fort in colonial days then an Army base, next came the Coast Guard and now an Art Park. Ferry service on week-ends from Pier 6 at the foot of Atlantic Avenue.
You need to take the ferry to go to Governor’s Island! This location is seasonal, so they open in the Spring. If you arrive at before 10 entrance is free! And you can also bike ride around the island to see the Statue of Liberty from afar. You won’t be able to get a close up, but you can still see…

Walk West to 7th Ave take the red line 1 Van Cortlandt Stop in Times Sq - 42 St Change to Yellow line N, R or W to Lexington Av/59 St. walk to 2 nd Ave and you can take the Tramway.
