someone asked me recently what i liked doing in my spare time. i laughed at first + said "what spare time?"... but then paused to think more seriously about it. "honestly" I answered, " I love experiencing New York City. I love finding out what's going on. finding out new restaurants, art shows, outdoor movies, museums, flea markets + etc." it's one of my favorite things about living here. there's always some cool to do. always. slowly but surely i'm checking things off of my list. the jazz age lawn festival on governor's island is something i've always heard about but didn't get a chance to finally check out till this year. i'm going to go ahead + say that it is just about the most favorite thing i've done yet in this city. roaring 20's themed lawn party, live jazz + people dressed to the nines like only New Yorker's could pull off. the people watching was amazing... champagne + st. germain cocktails were flowing non stop. old timey dancing, flapper styles, ragtime looks, a classic car show, a vintage swimsuit contest, + the most great gatsby-esque party you've ever attended. anyways, here's the photos.... + a link incase you want to know more. if you're ever in NYC in June or August, you simply must put it on your list!
