Don’t be left out of all the Governors Island fun this season! There are still three more days to come out and to the Island. This Friday, come out to enjoy one last day of Free Bike Fridays and borrow a bike for up to one hour entirely for free. From Friday – Sunday, you can rent a bike, or bring your own to enjoy four miles of car-free biking. You can also play a round of free artist designed mini-golf, kayak off one of our piers, see exhibits and more. It is also your last chance to see The New York CIty Waterfalls before it ends next week. So come on down, take the free seven minute ferry and experience all there is to do here before we close this Sunday!
This week’s New York Magazine has a great article on Olafur Eliasson’s New York City Waterfalls project that answers most of the questions folks are starting to ask us about the installations.
Since one of the New York City waterfalls is right here on Governors Island, we watched it slowly rise above our ferry dock this winter. Check out these cool pics one of our staff members took during its construction:
