About Us!


OUR MISSION

celebrate the Island’s rich history, create memorable parks and public spaces,
and ensure appropriate reuse of the Island and its historic structures.

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.

Join us in celebrating Governors Island by attending our annual summer benefit, Picnic in the Clouds! This year's event will be held on June 18th at 1 World Trade Center and will honor Ernst & Young, an outstanding friend and supporter of the Governors Island Alliance for many years; Jay Walder, CEO of Motivate, the global bike sharing company that operates Citi Bike and many other around the world; and City Council Representative Margaret Chin, who represents the many downtown Manhattan communities and Governors Island, and is a great friend to the Governors Island Alliance.  For more information, please click HERE
