It's the last weekend to watch the Flying Piano, Mr. Jones and Fred the Amazing Stunt Pig, and view archaeological findings from a four-century old village settlement at the New Island Festival on Governors Island. For the hungry there's lunch and dinner made from local ingredients and inspired by Dutch/European cuisine then served on a 400-ft table. But we'll probably be too full to partake after our brunch at Locanda Verde, where we plan to stop on our way to catch the ferry to the festival. We'd mentioned this Tribeca restaurant in a previous posting, when we first stopped in for lunch only to be re-awakened to the virtues of fresh ricotta.
Catch the free ferry to Governors Island, departing from the Battery Maritime Building next to the Staten Island Ferry.
