Governor's Island (1 of 2): Via Ferry from Downtown

I'm on my way to Governor's Island for their annual Civil War Weekend.  They are supposed to have re-enactments, tours, live music, and other activities for history buffs and families.  I just thought I would post this note so that folks who may read this and are free can go check it out today or tomorrow. 

Sure there are other activities and tours there normally (the island is open to visitors generally from the end of May through the end of September), but this is a very special weekend.  It is the 150th anniversary honoring the Civil War.  If you have some time, take advantage of the fabulous weather and head on over.  I'll report back my findings when I get back.  Enjoy all!
