Visitors to Governors Island enjoy a concert on Colonels Row

Governors Island is open seasonally for visitors and offers a diverse array of arts, cultural and recreational activities for all to enjoy.

The permit process for the 2014 public access season is now open so organizations can apply to bring their events and programs to the Island for the public season.

This year, for the first time ever, Governors Island will be open 7 days a week, from May 24 through September 28.

Check back here later in the spring for the full list of all that is happening this season!

  5. I live in NJ, and I would like to visit Gov. Island. Is there a ferry service from NJ to Gov. Island?

  6. Why does everything end Sept 25? Why can’t the island be open all year long? As a citizen of Brooklyn I respectfully request that the Island be made available all year long. To keep such a treasure locked up most of the year is a crime against the people of NY. Com’on Marty, com’on Bloomy. Give NY, give the nation this extraordinary park.
