- Molly Brown is making herself at home on the Island
The Governors Island cat
officially has a name! Since we found our feline friend on the Island, we have received thousands of comments and ideas for her name.
It seems the most popular name was Molly Brown, for the “Unsinkable” Molly Brown
, who became famous after travelling on the Titanic
‘s ill fated journey. After boarding lifeboat #6 once the Titanic struck ice, Molly helped row the boat with other women for hours and looked for survivors in the surrounding waters. She assisted those who had lost everything in the tragedy and raised funds to assist survivors as they started a new life after losing so much.

So thanks to all of you who voted and we hope to see you all out on the Island in two weeks!
