    The Hills at Governor's Island - NYC

    New York's longest slide

    My family and I are headed to Governor's Island, it's a quick, free ferry ride from Pier Six in Brooklyn,.to take on New York's longest slide this weekend. Coming in at 57 feet long and 3 stories high, I'm a little concerned about whether or not I'll be able to handle it - I have a severe fear of heights.  The Times has a funny review by two "slide critics." Follow my Snapchat story (Swoonbeauty) on 7/23 to see how it goes!.
