Only open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, this ferry-only accessible island is New York’s summer playground – literally. It is 172 acres of gardens, lawns, rolling hills, recreation areas, playgrounds, and concessions. You could spend the day lounging in a hammock overlooking a garden of lavender and butterflies, or you could bring your friends out for a day-long championship of ultimate frisbee, or you could take a date and picnic on a lawn overlooking Manhattan, or you could geek out on American History by scouting out all of the historical plaques, buildings, and museums, or you could bring your family and slide down New York City’s longest slide (57 feet!), or you could simply hang out at the Island Oyster Bar and while the day away with cocktails and oysters.
