Governors Island is a culinary destination! See food and beverage vendors from our 2020 season below.
Picnicking on Governors Island
Visitors to Governors Island are welcome to bring their own food. There are plenty of shaded green spaces on the Island that are perfect for laying a blanket on the grass, or Adirondack chairs and picnic tables for those who would prefer them. Visitors are not permitted to bring alcohol, but it can be purchased and consumed in specific areas. Grilling is not allowed except at grilling stations available by permit. Please note that grilling stations, along with the rest of the Island, are now closed for the season, reopening in spring 2021.
