NYLC Group Activity: Governors Island

   Governors Island

August 18th 

Meet in front of Midtown NYLC (226 West 37th Street) at 11am. From there, we’ll take the downtown 1 train to South Ferry in Manhattan and then take the ferry (free!) to Governors Island (5-10 minute ferry ride).  Governors Island has a really interesting history. It used to be a US Coast Guard base, and was only opened to the public 8 years ago. You can still see former military buildings there.

On the island, you can enjoy a free vintage baseball game, rent bicycles ($15/2h), listen to a jazz concert, eat delicious food and coffee, and enjoy the views of Manhattan.

Email or speak with Cassandra at Midtown NYLC (1-212-268-6500) for more information and to sign up for this activity.
