n late May, I visited Little Island on community opening day as a guest of Mary Habstritt, the executive director of the historic Coast Guard steam buoy tender Lilac berthed at Pier 25 in Tribeca.
Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves at the event. Children, and adults, rolled down the pier’s grassy hills and picnicked. Visitors ate in the food court, wandered the undulating paths and enjoyed breathtaking views.
