Tips from foursquare

  • Right as you exit the ferry to Governor’s Island, make a left and walk along the water where there is a great opportunity for a Panoramic Stitch that incudes Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge.

  • PHOTO: Manhattan rises out of the fog in this aerial shot, taken above Governors Island in 1950, at the link!

  • City of New York on 02/15/12

    The Governors Island ferry runs from this c. 1909 steel-faced, Beaux-Arts style survivor, a lone holdout from the days when ferry terminals lined the East River waterfront.

  • Charles E. on 03/15/12

    Please don't pee in the water, it's dirty enough as it is...
