We are excited to invite you to an exclusive tour of Governors Island on Friday, August 13 from 3:00 PM – 6:15 PM. We will convene at 3:00 PM at Battery Park Maritime Building Ferry Terminal at 10 South Street. The walking tour of Governors Island will be led by Sarah Krautheim, Vice President, Public Affairs, and Alex Brady, Director of Real Estate and Planning at The Trust for Governors Island, followed by complimentary drinks at Taco Vista.
Governors Island, only open to the public from May through October, is a 172-acre island in the heart of New York Harbor. This tour will offer the opportunity to learn more about Governors Island‘s transformation from a military base closed to the public for nearly two centuries into a vibrant destination with a resilient-designed park, and the Trust’s plans to activate it year-round with educational, nonprofit, and commercial facilities. Mayor Bill de Blasio and the Trust for Governors Island recently announced a competition to establish a center for climate solutions, which will create an educational and research hub dedicated to preparing cities for climate change
If you are interested, please sign up here by 9:00 AM on Monday, August 11. Attendees will receive confirmations by Tuesday, August 10.
