Tuesday, August 15 – 3:45 PM – 6:00 PM
Meet at Soissons Landing
This 45-minute walking tour will offer an inside look at the fascinating history and future of Governors Island: over 200 years of military history, award-winning park design, arts and culture programming, and sustainability initiatives make Governors Island a unique and little-known public space, minutes from NYC.
We will meet at the Battery Maritime Building located at 10 South Street and depart on the 3.45PM Ferry to Governor’s Island, arriving at Soissons Landing. From there, we will make our way through the historic part of the island to the recently constructed Hills at the Southern tip, concluding with great views of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan skyline.
The tour will be followed by drinks at the newly opened Island Oyster bar on the waterfront next to Soissons Landing.
