The West Harlem Art Fund is so thrilled to be on Governors Island this season. Governors Island is the oldest European settlement in New York. Formerly serving as a U.S. Army military base and U.S. Coast Guard station, 92 acres in the historic district of Governors Island are open to the public during spring and summer months. A seven-minute FREE ferry ride from the Battery Maritime Building in Lower Manhattan will get you there to picnic, bike ride, and enjoy the gorgeous views and other cultural activities.
Governors Island is managed by the National Park Service (NPS) and the Trust for Governors Island. NPS manages a 22 acre national monument within a larger National Historic Landmark District. The national monument showcases two forts from the early 19th century.
And we have a “QR” code so folks can find us on the island.
