I checked out Governer’s Island last week for the Jazz Age Lawn party – it was awesome. If you have a bike, bring it along. It’s a great way to check out the entire island. Governor’s Island is kind of shaped like an ice cream cone. Colonel’s row is runs West East across the island at the upper (bottom of the ice cream scoop) portion of the Island. Enjoy!! These NY Food Trucks won’t disappoint!

    Great idea! Not fully realized. Was expecting several trucks, but showed up and there were about 10 trucks and hundreds of people waiting in line. Keep it in Red Hook!

    I just finished reviewing this horrible event here http://hilarioustravel.blogspot.com/2010/09/parked.html

    This was awful. The lines were outrageous. I never did get any food. I just didn’t feel like standing in line for hours. It was so poorly organized. Some trucks ran out of food right a way… just horrible.

    Ok it was a complete failure. Not enough trucks, way too many long lines.

    I’d say if you want to try out food trucks head down to Red Hook Soccer Fields: http://www.plateoftheday.com/974/

    Or the upcoming Vendy awards which is UNFORTUNATELY on Governor’s Island!!!!!!

    I know this is a little late, but this is for my fellow food truck lovers, my new favorite website that lets users find food truck locations, place an order for pick-up and skip the annoying lines like those experiences on governor’s island >_< Enjoy, ladies and gentlemen! I hope as much as I do lol
