Where to Find the {NewNew} July 24 + 25

As July winds down, take advantage of these lazy summer days by strolling through some of the best markets NYC has to offer. Explore an area you have never been to and perhaps fall in love with a new designer's work along the way.

What: The {NewNew} Treasure Chest Store on Governors Island When: Friday 10am - 4pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am - 6pm
Where: House 6B in Nolan Park on Governors Island. Take the free ferry at the Battery Maritime Building in Manhattan or at Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 6 (Brooklyn ferries only run on weekends). More directions of ferry schedules here.
Who: Over 30 {NewNew} artists - check out the complete list here.
Governors Island Fun Fact: This NYC getaway has amazing events every week. You may have already missed Prince Harry playing polo (and subsequently falling off a horse? So I've heard...) or the punk rockers weekend, but you're sure to find something uniquely New York when you check it out on any given Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

What: Hester Street Fair
