Get Brooklyn Navy Yard-made PPE for your Governors Island visit at these vending machines


This year, we’re requiring visitors to wear face coverings at all times while boarding and riding our ferries and while on the Island when social distancing isn’t possible. It’s a breeze to grab some new Personal Protective Equipment before boarding the ferry or while you’re on Governors Island thanks to two vending machines stocked with Brooklyn Navy Yard-made materials.

These two machines, one located in the lobby of the Battery Maritime Building in Manhattan and the other in Liggett Archway on the Island, carry a variety of face coverings and hand sanitizers. Besides the stylish Governors Island bandana, all of these PPE offerings are made by companies based in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

The inventory of Navy Yard-made PPE

These easy-to-use machines offer masks by Accurate Knitting, American Heirloom, Atoms, Crye Precision, Engraved Signs, Fydelity Bags, Rebel Designs, Stitch, and Tracey Tanner that come in different styles and designs. You can also grab a Governors Island bandana with a fun ferry pattern (or if you aren’t visiting soon, pick one up in our online store) that doubles as a great face covering.

Once you’ve got your face covering, keep your hands clean during your visit with hand sanitizer gel by Scully’s, Kings County Distillery, and Ecologics, or with Ecologic’s hand sanitizing spray.
