1920s roar back on Governors Island

(Credit: Urbanite)

The Urbanite crew spent Saturday poking around Governors Island, and from the minute we boarded the boat, we knew something was odd. A man was dressed like it was 1925, and he seemed perfectly unconcerned. A few more sightings of walking anachronisms and we found out the island was hosting another one of its incredibly popular 1920s lawn parties, complete with the stylings of Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra.

Here are some shots colleague Jamshid and I snapped of the flapper madness. And read more about the Gatsby frolics here.
