This weekend, thousands of visitors came out to Governors Island to enjoy the last official weekend of summer. Many visitors took advantage of the miles of car-free biking here, while others caught performances at the New Island Festival, and saw the houses of Nolan Park as they were transformed by Droog design as a part of Pioneers of Change.
One attraction that provided delight for children and adults alike was Mist-e Simone, the New Island Festivals’ iconic cow. Mist-e took up residence on the Festival’s Boulevard of Broken Dreams and was a great ambassador for the Island.
Another unique site during the festival was the archeological dig. Even though the festival is over, the archeological dig will remain open every Friday – Sunday until the Island closes. So even though these wonderful Dutch events are over, there are still many more dynamic exhibitions, performances and programs happening through October 11.
