Happy Fourth of July!!

Come enjoy your extended weekend in the most relaxing location in NYC.  For the holiday, the island is open on Monday as well, so come take advantage of this local getaway.  Bring a picnic lunch and lounge the day away.  Don’t even think about getting on the roads to get out of the city, it’s a mess out there! Just hop on one of the many ferries and get your butt out here!!!

Elsewhere on the island….
