Since 1995, the Alliance has worked collaboratively with the Trust for Governors Island, the National Park Service, and many other organizations to return the Island to the people of New York. Our concept of redeveloping the Island as a great civic space was the basis for the 2003 transfer from the Federal Government to New York and the National Park Service.
You keep us afloat! Supporters like you are the reason Governors Island is blooming. The 2014 season was our most successful season on Governors Island to date! With almost half a million visitors this season, new park grounds, improved ferries, and weekday access, the Island is becoming New Yorkers’ favorite summer escape. Governors Island is gearing up for the 2015 season, which promises new events and activities as well as the return of old favorites! Whether you donate time or other resources, each contribution helps us make the Island a better, more unique New York experience for all of our visitors!
