Surreal Governor’s Island

This small island smack in the middle of New York harbor is weird and wonderful in a post-apocalyptic Mayberry, USA kind of way. Orderly yet abandoned 50’s era military housing, centuries old forts and crunchy-artsy commune all fuse to give bicycling tourists some of the strangest views of Manhattan available. Although now closed for the season, it will reappear from the mists of time and reopen to the public next Spring. Be sure to visit before it’s too late—Applebee’s anyone?
