DDC Day 10: Governers Island
Took that kids and their bikes to Governors Island. This place is great. It is a gift. I have learned that if you don't accept and enjoy your gifts you will lose them.
The best thing about going there is the lack of a sign that says "XYZ Corporation Welcomes You..." There is no Citibank, not McDonald's, but lots of nice stuff and pleasant people who are there to help you have a good time.
It is a great place to take two nine year-olds and their bikes. But for me that meant I had to take two nine year-olds and their bikes on the SUBWAY. Not so easy. We did not make any friends on the R train. But we did not make any enemies either. I forgot Whitehall has an escalator, not an elevator. Oy. I don't think we are going to bike back there till we can bike all the way there.
Once there we had a great time. The 10 minute ferry ride was pleasant one once we got there we had lunch the kids played in a giant sand box then we loop around the Island.
We played mini golf and did some arts and crafts nicely supplied and staffed by the Children's Museum of Manhattan
So I urge you. Go there and enjoy. If you don't we might not have it anymore. Donand Trump might buy it.
