When the M family asked us if we wanted to go to Figment at Governor's Island I immediately said yes. It seemed like a fun activity and we could picnic out on the lawn to watch the festivities and soak up the summer sun. The great thing about it was the ferry to the island is short (10-15 min) and free in the early morning (and its right by our apt!) All in all it was a great day and totally recommend for kids who are active. We got it all in a video!
Governor's island is cool and GREEN...here's one of the 2 food truck spots.The newest section has a playground and bike paths.
