Formerly a U.S. Army base and then a Coast Guard community, respectively, Governors Island has been given a new lease on life as a vibrant destination for art, culture and recreational activities. The island hosts a range of festivals and events throughout the summer that are just a free ferry ride away (from either Manhattan or Brooklyn). Check out for a schedule of events ยป

Governors Island is open Saturdays, Sundays and holiday Mondays (Labor Day) through 29th September.
