About South Battery

The South Battery District occupies the east side of Governors Island, facing Buttermilk Channel and Brooklyn. Former uses of its buildings were primarily community-oriented, including a theater, school, YMCA, and houses of worship. Yankee Landing, located at the district's south corner, is the current entry point for visitors arriving from Brooklyn. The Landing can accommodate pedestrian vessels from anywhere in the NY Harbor.
