Spiderman Returns to Governors Island on Sunday

+1 Pin It Share

Fred Van Lente, author of The Amazing Spiderman, will be on Governors Island this Sunday at 1:30 PM to talk to visitors about how he set two issues of the iconic series on the Island. 

In each story, Spiderman battles the Sandman around some of the island’s most notable landmarks and areas, including Castle Williams, Fort Jay, the historic district, and even the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel vent shaft (which is how the evil Sandman accesses Governors Island).

Even the old  Burger King on the southern end of the Island makes an appearance in the story. 

Van Lente will take your questions about Spidey, how comics are made, and anything you might want to ask, so be sure to stop by the Commanding Officers House on Sunday to hear about Spiderman’s adventures on the Island.

Keeping up with Construction on Governors Island

We know you can’t see us out here in the middle of the Harbor in the winter, but we don’t want you to miss out on all the action.

So we’ve added two fun new ways to peer over our construction fences. We’re snapping shots on Instagram, so follow us at governors island (if you didn’t just delete your account this week).

And we’ve started a neat slideshow on dropbox that shows construction progress in a series of before and after shots with renderings. It changes every week, so be sure to keep checking in.

And as always, can follow us on Facebook, or Twitter, or this blog, where we post a “Field Report” every Tuesday. Stay tuned!
