Travel Information for September 11: Governors Island is open on Sunday, September 11 from 10 AM to 7 PM. Ferries will leave every half hour from the Battery Maritime Building in Lower Manhattan and will also run continuously from Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6 as they normally do during the Island’s public access days.
There will be significant traffic and street closures in Lower Manhattan which will make vehicular travel difficult. We encourage Island visitors to use mass transit to reach the Battery Maritime Building.
Please leave yourself extra time for travel in Lower Manhattan but be advised that ferry service will be frequent on Sunday and will run every 30 minutes.
