This tranquil ride on car-free Governors Island takes you past historic forts, nineteenth- century buildings, arts enclaves, and sprawling lawns that offer a welcome respite from the hectic nature of city life. A half-day on the island will carry you back to the nineteenth century, when most of the redbrick buildings here served as officer housing units. Bring food, water, and a picnic blanket, and enjoy some time away from urban life. It’s a great ride for families, too.
