Governors Island

Governors Island

One of the most unique destinations in New York City, Governors Island is 172-acres of self contained fun, entertainment and nature in New York Bay, separated but not far from the lower tip of Manhattan and cut off from Brooklyn by Buttermilk Channel. Technically, the island is part of Manhattan, and though it is a naturally occurring piece of land, the island has been extended by man-made construction through the years to increase its size. The island is home to national monuments and has a rich history, making it protected as a National Landmark and a National Monument. Because of this, laws prohibit housing on the island. It is however open to the public every day from May through September, and transportation to the island is provided by ferries from Manhattan or Brooklyn (on summer weekends), for only 4 dollars. Activities and entertainment on the island include walking tours by the National Park Service, bike rental and bike riding, beautiful parks, gardens and fields for picnicking, art shows, installations and fairs. Governors Island is Manhattan’s premier island paradise getaway, and one of its best kept secrets. During the summer, this is the perfect place to plan a day trip to get away from all the business of the city and instead enjoy scenic nature, calm backdrops, arts and culture and relaxation with great views of the water and the city.
