Governors Island is one of my favorite new places of 2014. Governors Island is a seven minute ($2) ferry ride from the southern tip of Manhattan and a great place to get away from the congestion of the city. It has biking and walking paths and many summertime activities. The Sculptors Guild holds an annual exhibition on Governors Island. This was the first year that I participated in it. The show's theme this year was Transformations. A video of the Poetry and Prose section of the show can be seen here ( Poetry and Prose Video ).
