Look into the past of Governors Island and learn about its exciting transformation and future. In these free one-hour walking tours, we will examine how historic preservation, innovative design and environmental stewardship make the Island what it is today: one of the most unique public spaces in New York City.
All walking tours begin at the Governors Island Welcome Center at Soissons Landing and are led by Friends of Governors Island volunteer tour guides.
