Fête Paradiso on Governors Island (NY VII)


It was the first time that I visited Governors Island which is only a five-minute ferry ride away from Manhattan. During summer weekends it hosts the Fête Paradiso, a fair with French carousels from the past two centuries. Once I got there, it felt as if I had travelled in time. The manèges looked beautiful and were still functioning. Definitely worth hopping over to and as a bonus you get to admire the beautiful Manhattan skyline.
