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.
