Shut out of the 1 p.m. ferry to Governors Island because of the 2009 Jazz Age Lawn Party, we wandered around Lower Manhattan, wondering what to do. First went over towards The Battery and Pier A, which they seem no closer to renovating, except for some fancy signage:

So we decided to take the IKEA Express Water Taxi to Red Hook:

There’s the new Erie Basin Park there:

Truthfully, Red Hook was a little hot that day (83 degrees, 77 percent humidity), so we returned home via the B61.

In Greenpoint, a word of warning, and some good advice in general:

Not that we’re in the market for a new mattress or anything, but good to know . . .
