The June edition was unmissable as always, at least judging by pictures, but the September one could be a great way to celebrate the beginning of Fall. So go, if you can!
The Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor's Island has everything you can ask for: authentic '78 records from the 1920s played on a phonograph, charleston lessons, 1920s motorcar exhibition, vintage clothing dealers and boutique milliners, swimsuit competition (for women and men!), parade of hats, vintage portraits and of course flappers, sporting gents, tiny tots and Michael Arenella with his Dreamland Orchestra.
There's even a Pie Contest with categories like "Mom’s Best" and "Hobo's Choice", but if you prefer savoury food there are also tasty sandwiches and BBQ for your picnic needs...
So what you're waiting for?
