Are you just joining us on our aerial tour of Governors Island in 1938? Here we are given a view of the Parade Grounds and the back of Colonels Row from the top of St. Cornelius Chapel, built in 1905. Note that the quadrangle in Ft. Jay was painted white (or pale yellow) like most of the oldest brick buildings on Governors Island. The 16th infantry is in review on the Parade Grounds, watched by a small crowd of onlookers and, tennis courts are in the foreground. Nice island!
