Fête Paradiso @ Governors Island

To mix things we are going to do a pre-brunch activity by riding the ferry to Governors Island to check out Fête Paradiso.

Fête Paradiso, the world’s first traveling festival of vintage carnival rides and carousels, will make its American debut on Governors Island in New York City. The rare, museum-quality collection, which includes a diverse array of attractions from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, such as carousels, flying swings and a pipe organ, will be available for the public to ride and enjoy.

Admission is FREE

Rides are $3 each

Cell reception might be spotty on the island so we will be meeting at the Battery Maritime Building at 9:45a to catch the 10a ferry to Governors Island.

Ferry to Governors Island is FREE from Manhattan and BK. 

(NY Harbor ferry is not free, FYI)

For those who live elsewhere, you're more than welcome to take ferries from other locations and find us at Nolan Park.

We'll be catching the 11:30a ferry back to Manhattan for brunch @ S'Nice.

People are welcome to skip brunch and stay on the island longer.

*Attending members are encouraged to privately share contact info beforehand if running late or taking a different ferry*
