Little Island is New York City’s newest, and possibly most photogenic public space. Located in Hudson River park between 13th and 14th Streets, the 2.4-acre “floating park” aims to provide a unique relationship between nature and art, and a respite from the urban bustle.

There will be a weekly recurring artist series starting with live music, dance and more starting June 14. Check out the lineup here. If you are entering the park after noon, you must book a free timed-entry ticket (we recommend planning ahead, it’s a popular park). The good news? There’s no limit on how long you can stay once you’re inside.

Food, beer and wine will be available for purchase. Little Island will also be hosting Savory Talks & Performances, a free series exploring food sustainability and trends. It will kick off on June 21 with Sustainable Meat & Seafood, presented by Greenpoint Fish & Lobster Company and The Meat Hook.

Dogs, bikes, scooters and skateboards are not permitted. Learn more.
