One of my favourite things to do in NYC is walk the streets. Every corner is full of colour and talent.

Island Oyster, NYC

Island Oyster Governors Island
If you fancy getting out of Manhattan for a little while, but aren’t up for a long subway ride, I have just the place. 

Now, I’m not a HUGE fan of boats, but the promise of good food, cocktails and insane views of Lower Manhattan had me climbing aboard, and heading to Governors Island.

Governors Island, a five-minute ferry ride from downtown Manhattan (everyday) or Brooklyn (Saturday and Sunday only) is home to various events during the spring, summer and fall, but Island Oyster is its only stand-alone restaurant. Essentially it’s just one big, long bar, serving up oysters, lobster rolls, fish tacos, burgers and cocktails.Island Oyster Governors Island

 Settle at the bar and order up some cocktails whilst checking out the menu.

 We ordered some local oysters, washed down with more drinks

Island Oyster will be closing for the season soon! So, if you're in the city this week, get over there. If not, you'll have to wait until Summer 2019 (it will be worth it though!)
