Safe to say there’s nothing else quite like it in New York City. Governors Island, of course, isn’t exactly typical of New York neighborhoods — set between Brooklyn and the Statue of Liberty, a short water-taxi ride from Pier 25 in Manhattan, it’s a city park that enjoys unparalleled views and an inimitable atmosphere, one that’s impressively pastoral given that you could swim to Brooklyn from here (in principle; don’t try it).

Collective Governors Island offers the sort of grown-up summer-camp experience you’d ordinarily drive to the Catskills to find, accompanied by live entertainment and cocktails on the Sunset Terrace. Tents feature air conditioning, en suite bathrooms, Frette robes, and high-end bath products, and the top-end Outlook Shelter is a cabin-like structure with an indoor soaking tub facing the Statue of Liberty.
Activities include mindfulness, meditation, and yoga sessions, as well as food and beverage classes ranging from wine tasting to lobster poaching and oyster shucking. Meanwhile, each morning, a complimentary breakfast is served en suite — or en tente — and dinner options range from a la carte seafood to a five-course tasting menu. And it’s not the only game in town — Governors Island has a few restaurants of its own, including a very fine oyster bar.
