Enjoy the complimentary earplugs to see, but not hear, the colorful parade of harbor boats.

Our tent faced the water and we were able to see the ferry boats passing by with a view of the Statute of Liberty while still in bed. It was also so fun to be on Governor's Island when nobody else was there and have the whole place to ourselves.
