Everyone put on their best flapper costumes for the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island

There are few events on the New York social calendar that are quite as exciting as the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island. For one thing, everyone (EVERYONE) dresses up in their best vintage clothes, dances wildly and drinks St-Germain cocktails. For another, they take absolutely beautiful photos of themselves doing all those things. We chose a selection of our favorite snaps below, but honestly we aren’t sure it’s possible to take a bad photo of this event.
