Once at the top, parkgoers will get incredible views of Manhattan, the river and across to New Jersey. There are also three main lawns that visitors can sunbathe on and a secret garden full of only white blooms—from birch trees and crepe myrtles to roses and anemones that you can get to by walking through an arched trellis.

Collective Governors Island is a luxury glamping retreat on the west side of the island with sweeping views of Lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. The retreat was open last summer and provided a rare, in-city escape for New Yorkers during that summer of outdoor social distancing.

After standing tall for years, the Statue of Liberty is due for a rest—at least, according to artist Zaq Landsberg.
