The 6th Bi-Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party

The Jazz Age Lawn Party always seems to fall on the hottest day of summer, as if to torment all of the gentlemen dressed in wool jackets and cutting up the dance floor. I benefited from a parasol and an airy nylon dress on this sweltering afternoon, sorry boys! The stifling temperature aside, nothing is more relaxing on a Saturday afternoon than laying in the shade on peaceful Governor's Island, with the jazz sounds of Michael Arenella's Dreamland Orchestra playing across the lawn and a refreshing St. Germain cocktail in hand.
