To my knowledge, this is the only place in NYC where you can claim a hammock with a view. Of course, you have to get there fairly early and then high tail it down to the southern end of the island (Picnic Point). The island is great for bike riding - bring your own or rent one there. And there are fabulous old buildings to explore (not all are open, but enough are that you can get an idea of the rest). And there's plenty grassy lawns for relaxing. I've taken some great naps in the grass on Governor's Island! If only they allowed dogs on the island, it would be perfect (for me). Despite that, it's still excellent.
