4 Exciting New York Events Scheduled for May 2018

Spring time is in full swing, the sun is out, and New York has no shortage of events scheduled for May. Our Long Island limousine service encourages you to go out, soak in the sun, take in all the colors, and enjoy the plethora of activities the Big Apple has to offer. Do not forget to plan for the major holidays that fall on this month including Memorial Day and Mother’s Day. Consider contracting our Bronx car service for all your transportation needs this May on your way to any one of these amazing events. Our trusted chauffeurs will transfer you and your companions promptly and safely as you kick back, enjoy the company of your friends and family, and look forward to your next adventure.

Governors Island Reopened

After being closed to the public over the winter, Governors Island reopens on the 1st of May. This former military island remains undiscovered by most people, which is ironical because this natural terrain has so much to offer. For as little as $2, you will be able to take a ferry ride to the island and sit a stone throw away from Lower Manhattan. If you want to get away from the bustling city, even just for a bit, Governors Island is the perfect hideaway. This car-free island has something for everyone: from historical military buildings, public hammocks, to awesome bike paths; the island offers activities that are perfect for the warmer May weather.

Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch Cruise

The Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch Cruise has been scheduled for the 13th of May, which is the official Mother’s Day date. Take the time out of your busy schedule to treat your mother to an elegant brunch as you cruise the harbor for two hours. You will get to enjoy pristine views of Brooklyn, Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, and more. Boarding takes place at Pier 40 in West Village at 11 pm; departure is at 12 pm, so don’t be late. On the cruise you will enjoy live music entertainment and receive complimentary champagne. Get your tickets in advance before they are totally sold out.

Summer Kickoff Yacht Party

Head over to West Village for the Hornblower Cruises Summer Kickoff Party at Pier 40. The event is scheduled for the 10th of May and we recommend that you come in your favorite casual clothes for this three-hour party.  The party begins at 6:30pm, so don’t be late or you’ll have to wait for next year’s kickoff party. You will enjoy an open bar, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and awesome music from popular local DJs. Take the time to enjoy the gorgeous New York skyline and explore all four floors of the yacht before the party is over.

Memorial Day in New York

Memorial Day is scheduled for the 28th of May. As we all know, this is a celebration of the lives of all fallen soldiers who have paid the ultimate price in service to the Fatherland. As we focus on making the most of the month, we think it is important to take a day to honor these men and women of valor and to reflect on all the joys and freedoms we enjoy because of their sacrifice.
