Yesterday I spent the day on Governors Island and took the following incredible shots of Lower Manhattan. As a native New Yorker, I have to say this trip provided me with the most spectacular views of Lower Manhattan I’ve ever seen. The ferry cost was only $2 round-trip. That is an amazingly low price for the ability to capture these magnificent scenic views.

Once on Governors Island you can learn about its history, gaze at its historic structures, rent a bicycle to take a ride around the island, enjoy an array of delicious items served from food trucks, and spend the afternoon relaxing at a quaint beer garden. If you have not visited Governors Island yet, I recommend you get out there before the summer is over and enjoy the phenomenal panoramic views of Lower Manhattan.
