A Look Back at Summer

Thank you to all the wonderful programming organizations and visitors that made the 2014 Public Season on Governors Island so special. We were open seven days a week, and we had more visitors and more events on the Island than ever before.

It is hard to believe that the Island closed already one month ago. In the meantime, the leaves have begun to change and New York City has fully embraced fall. On a day like today though, it is hard not to think of all the great times we had this summer.

Here is a look at some of our favorite summer moments. Share your favorites in the comments below!

Opening of the New Ball Fields on the South Island!

At the southern end of the 30 acres of new park and public space opened to the public this year are two grass ball fields overlooked by the Statue of Liberty. The fields hosted pick-up soccer games, adult softball, and many little leagues all summer long. Did you have a chance to test them out?

Jazz Age Lawn Party

Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra blew us away twice this summer. The Jazz Age Lawn Party, so perfectly placed among the early 1900’s houses in Colonels Row, brought some of the best dressed New Yorkers to Governors Island this summer. It was so good, even  Vogue Brazil’s covered it!

FIFA 2014 World Cup

For many, this summer was all about the World Cup. Thanks to Spontaneous Interventions, Governors Island was an official viewing area of the games. The US heart pounding games brought several thousand fans to the Island. We made it out of the group stages this time, and  in 2018 I believe that we will win!

The AIDS Memorial Quilt

For the first time in more than 10 years, the AIDS Memorial Quilt was on view in NYC on Governors Island. The Aids Memorial Quilt is a memorial to those who have died of AIDS. Today, it is made up of more that 48,000 3 by 6 foot panels that each memorialize the name of someone who has died of AIDS. The quilt was first begun in 1987 by a group in San Francisco, and today the project is continued by The Names Project Foundation.

The NYC Unicycle Festival

What is more fun than riding a bike around Governors Island? Riding a unicycle! The NYC Unicycle Festival came to the Island in August, bringing with them unicycle basketball, unicycle piñatas, and workshops to teach newcomers how to ride unicycles.

Governors Island Art Fair

One More Week to Visit Governors Island!

That means you have exactly seven days left to take a trip to Governors Island!

Governors Island this week will be filled with events and exhibitions to help you wrap up the summer season!

Ride a Bike with Free Bike Mornings! 

Enjoy free bikes on Governors Island for one more week! Free Bike Mornings allows visitors to borrow a bike for free for up to one hour on any weekday. Bikers will be able to enjoy miles of bike paths, including new paths in the 30 acres of park that look upon the Statue of Liberty. Visitors are also able to rent bikes or bring a bike on the ferry at no extra charge.

“A Portrait of Marina Abromovic” by Matthu Placek in Fort Jay  

Matthu Placek is making his New York debut of his 3D video portraits on Governors Island this week! The piece, ” A Portrait of Marina Abramovic” will be installed in Fort Jay from September 25th through the 28th. Shot in one take and without dialogue, these short films offer rare, uninterrupted moments with subjects as they interact with symbolic surroundings. 3D cinematography enhances the intimacy of the vignettes, further collapsing the space between the viewer and the subjects’ essential natures. Screenings are every 15 minutes to groups of 6 people by reservation. To make a free reservation please visit www.130919.eventbrite.com

LMCC Open Studios

Explore the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s many programs this week on Governors Island. In the LMCC gallery (building 110), you will find an exhibition on the work of Trisha Brown. Over in the St Cornelius Church, you can experience the development of Rachel Tess’s “Souvenir” during open studio hours every day this week (12PM-4PM). LMCC describes the performance: “the project investigates the relationships between architecture and choreography and choreographer and audience. The work more specifically explores the concept of a mobile architecture versus pre-existing institutional structures and how this design may impact the making and viewing of performance.” This coming weekend is the LMCC Open Studio Weekend. There will be art’s activities and open studios at four unique sites, including Governors Island. See more information here.

Hammocks and Food vendors!

This is your last chance to nap in a hammock and take a hammock selfie! With the weather forecast estimated to be 70 degrees all week, it is the perfect time to snuggle in Hammock Grove and maybe bring a book. Afterwards, stroll over to Kings Ave and Liggett Terrace to the many food vendors for a quick bite. Get a taste of Snowday and decide if they deserved their recent Vendy Award (p.s. they totally did). Then back to the hammocks to sleep off that Snowday maple grilled cheese!

September 27th Governors Island Kite Festival 

Bring your kites or make one during the Governors Island Kite Festival! Brooklyn Artery, CMA, and the Brooklyn Kite Fest are coming together to bring you a Governors Island Kite Festival. There will be music, refreshments and fun to be had for the whole family.  All activities are free. The festival will run from 11-4PM.

Take a look at the historic 19th century officers’ homes in Nolan Park, all painted yellow. Image courtesy of The Trust.

The park is a remnant of the 19th century, lined by charming yellow houses that were once home to military officers. These homes now serve another purpose – every summer arts and cultural organizations turn the Nolan Park houses into exhibits, shops, and activity spaces.

Stop by building 4A and you’ll be surrounded by the masterful photography of Robert Capa; head over to building 18 to experience NYC during the Civil War; and if you find yourself in building 10B, you’ll be privy to an array of one-of-a-kind, hand-made crafts by Brooklyn ARTery.

Nolan Park is also a wonderful spot to relax in the shade of an elm tree, set up a picnic, or enjoy a walk along crisscrossing brick pathways. The south end of the park is especially scenic – there you can find the Chapel of Saint Cornelius, another exhibition center that houses some of the most spectacular performances on Governors Island!

What to do in Nolan Park:

- Enjoy the Park! While there are many exciting events offered in the houses of Nolan Park, the Park itself is a tranquil area full of century-old trees that offer great shade. Make time for a picnic, relax on a bench to do some people watching, or just go for a leisurely stroll.

Take a walk through Nolan Park and be surrounded by  the charms of 19th century New York.

Dance on Governors Island!

Governors Island is hosting more dance than ever before! There are nearly a dozen dance events happening this summer, and all are free.

Image

Coming up soon is Baila Baila, a renowned dance academy that has performed all over to the world. They have traveled to New York from Albuquerque, New Mexico to perform traditional Mexican Folk Dance TODAY at 1 pm in Nolan Park!

River to River projects also begin today. One such performance on the Island is Eiko’s Two Women on June 20. Eiko experiments to create and present a duet with Japanese dancer Tomoe Aihara. Two Women is an experimental performance that focuses on age difference and explores how two bodies sometimes mirror each other in parts or collide into one.

The Island is definitely an inspiring place to play and move, and many of these dance events are site-specific. Project LIMB will also be in Colonels Row this July presenting site-specific dance that enlivens our relationship with the world around us. Third Rail Projects is inviting the public to have a window into the creative process of their touring project Roadside Attraction, a mobile dance/theater work. They’ll be dancing on tables outside a 1970’s Coleman pop-up camper in Nolan Park outside Building 17.  Check out one of their open rehearsals today from noon to 5pm!

“More New Yorkers than ever before can now enjoy dance while visiting Governors Island,” said Lane Harwell, Executive Director of Dance NYC. “The Island’s history, culture and spirit provide a wonderful opportunity to interpret and bring their art to entirely new audiences.”

We hope to see you there!
