NYC USk - Saturday Sketching at Governors Island August 31, 2013

The last installment  of our ongoing commitment to take advantage of every free ferry ride  during the month of August.

Our commitment - to take every free ferry ride New York provides

Governors Island, -172 acres in the heart of New York Harbor, only 800 yards from Lower Manhattan, and even closer to Brooklyn. A world unto itself, unique and full of promise.  

It's one of New York's great new public spaces.

The Island is open from 10 AM to 7 PM.  

  • From Manhattan: Ferries leave from the Battery Maritime Building, on the corner of South and Whitehall Streets. (departs every 30 minutes until 5:30)
  • From Brooklyn: Ferries leave from Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6 at the foot of Atlantic Avenue. (departs every hour)
Governor's Island has unique views of the city

Get there early -  lines form.  We're taking the 11 AM Ferry 
(note - not our usual 10 AM start time)

If you're delayed or off to a slow start  - come anyway. 

It's a big island - Call or text if you can't find us:
