Is this not ridiculously cool, or what? NYPL has partnered with Brooklyn Public Library and Queens Library to provide this outdoor reading room (known as the Library Lawn) on beautiful Governors Island this summer. The pop-up library will be open on weekends starting today, and you can check out books, get library cards, enjoy free programming - it’s basically a branch outdoors, in the sun, with hammocks. So go check it out sometime this summer! Is there really a better way to spend a warm day than with a good book?

Governors Island season, ya’ll!

listen,

if you get on that boat to Governors Island and aren’t:

  • rushing to find the best seat on the top where there’s open air and the best view of that 3min ride
  • immediately sweating profusely in every nook and cranny of your body
  • scared yet elated when the boat abruptly pulls out and starts chugging off
  • snapping photos and bragging to everyone online I’M ON A BOAT

then you don’t deserve to be in this city. 

today within an hour’s walk around the perimeter of Governors Island, I:

  • had a smile on my face the size of a watermelon
  • missed seeing people dressed in seer sucker suits prepped for a Polo match
  • saw kids ecstatic to be fishing
  • saw whole families camped out at Picnic Point
  • took lots of photos 
  • walked, stopped, and started so much my feet hurt
  • laid out to see the hot dude at the trapeze school
  • ate a CANDIED BACON + PEANUT BUTTER ICE CREAM SANDWICH
  • remembered how much I love this place

don’t even talk to me if you don’t like it here.
