It’s hard to imagine, but Governors Island had over 2,000 parking spaces before we began construction. But now, many unused parking lots are being transformed by the Governors Island Parks and Public Open Space project.
Last week, the crews started digging up the parking lot next to Soissons Landing (where Manhattan ferries land) to make the perimeter road safer and more comfortable for pedestrians and cyclists.
