This Weekend in NYC: Jazz Age Lawn Party, Governor’s Island (with Photos!)

Looking for a fun activity in New York City this weekend (August 28-29)? Head to Governor’s Island for the Jazz Age Lawn Party, featuring Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra. Flappers and their families flock to these 172 acres of shady grasslands in full 1920s garb for a flashback to the Gatsby era: picnics, Peabody/Charleston dance lessons, portraits, pie contests and more. Check out my photos from last year’s Jazz Age Lawn Party here:
