. . . and the view from Governors Island is amazing! From the Island, you can see three out of the four New York City Waterfalls. Here’s a photo I took from the Coursen (our ferry boat) on my way to work this morning.

For the sole purpose of tooting our own horn, I will note that the Governors Island waterfall made Curbed‘s top two list (out of four) of favorite New York City Waterfalls. But at the risk of starting an intra-harbor rivalry, I must point out that our waterfall has the added allure of falling on top of real rocks at low tide. Check it out:
