We now know how Governors Island intends to raise some of that much-needed cash. Say howdy to Water Taxi Beach: Governors Island, just revealed by Eater. New York Water Taxi, which operates the summertime fake beach/boozy free-for-all along the the Long Island City waterfront, has much in store for the Gov's location:
Water Taxi Beach/Governors Island will be a laid back, on the waterfront, beach experience of sun, fun, food and music; with tons of sand, beach volleyball, a café and outdoor grill, a stage for live performances and basketball courts. No swimming allowed.Check out Eater for more renderings and details. Us? We're too busy staring at those sweaty beefcakes playing beach volleyball on freakin' Governors Island. Strange sight, indeed. There will reportedly be another Water Taxi Beach location somewhere in Manhattan this summer, so all attention now turns to that mystery.
