Governors Island

Isle New York, USA

Where New-Yorkers go for a break Governors Island

From May through October, this former military base hosts city slickers looking for a daytime escape, which they find in Governors Island’s monuments, parks, exhibitions, and events all summer long.

For almost two centuries, this 172-acre isle in the heart of New York Harbor was closed to the public, operating as a military base. Now, anyone can visit Governors Island’s monuments, parks, and exhibitions during summer (May through October, seven days a week). To get there, all you need is a round-trip ferry ticket.
