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.

Now Accepting Proposals for Indoor Programs in 2019

We are now accepting proposals for 2019 public programs on Governors Island, including multi-year programs that would extend beyond a single public season! Historic houses in Nolan Park and Colonels Row are available to arts, cultural and educational organizations providing free public programming in the 2019 season, with season-long programs (May-October) encouraged.

Enjoy the best of Governors Island!
