Tripping The Light Fantastic At Governors Island Jazz-Age Fête

Go HERE to see more photos by Gabriel Liberty that put Gatsby and Daisy to shame and to tag picture of yourself and your chums.

Flappers and gents showed that they were the bees' knees at a Governors Island lawn party this week. Baby vamps and even baby grands proved they were ritzy on the floor - no heelers here, only Oliver Twists and floorflushers!

As you can see, all the Janes were skirts, tomatoes, and choice bits of calico; all the men were big-sixes and cake-eaters. So all was darb and Jake - No Mrs. Gundys allowed.
