The Easiest Way To Get Away

Governors Island is a 172 acre island in the heart of New York Harbor. It’s only 800 yards from Lower Manhattan, and even closer to Brooklyn. It is a world unto itself, unique and full of promise.

​Just announced: Governors Island is now open year-round!

Starting this year, New Yorkers and visitors be able to enjoy Governors Island’s open space, cultural and recreational resources year-round, for the first time in history. Also just announced: NYC Ferry will also serve Governors Island year-round 7 days a week with additional service on the South Brooklyn Route on weekdays and non-summer weekends, plus their existing Pier 11/Wall Street summer shuttle.
