Governor’s Island

Website: Governor’s Island

Let’s spend the afternoon shooting photographs at Governor’s Island!!

The primary meetup point will be by the benches next to the Bowling Green Subway Station (4, 5 trains) - see top photo. Then we will go to the free Manhattan Ferry. Do not take the Brooklyn Ferry to try to meet the group at the Island -- as my phone will be off during the event.

The meetup will roughly be around 3-4 hours - depending on how crowded the island is and how long we have to wait on a line for the ferry. When we get to the island, we can decide on a time and a meetup point - in case people get lost or want to venture off on their own. I believe the ferry runs every half hour if you want to leave early. There are various events and historical sites to see. Visit the website to review the calendar.

* Please be on time!! Give yourself plenty of time to travel. Check for delays and service changes. I will not wait for late comers and I won’t answer calls or messages after 1pm.

* Make sure you dress appropiately for the weather and wear your walking shoes.

* Please note that there will be a lot of walking and possible high temperatures/humidity that may affect you -- if you have any health issues. Be careful!!

* Charge your batteries and format your memory cards.

* Bring cash, snacks and drinks to the event. There were a few food carts there when I scouted the area.


Looking forward to seeing you there… Sally[masked]

    Majority of the group are on the island -- some venturing on their own. We will meet each other in front of the graphic design building by the ferry at 4:15pm.

    Good Morning Everyone! The forecast for today is much better than yesterday - high 89 degrees and humidity is dropping!! Make sure you all stay hydrated and wear comfy shoes -- we may be walking quite a bit. Give yourselves plenty of time to travel -- as mass transit is slow and has service changes/delays. When you get to the Bowling Green Station, look for me. I will be right by the benches wearing a blue New York Giants tee shirt. See you soon!!

    Please note that the lines for the ferries are slow and long so I don’t know how long it will take us to get to the island.

    Hi Kathy! As I mentioned in the description, please do not take the Brooklyn Ferry. I do not have a meetup point at the Island and my phone will be off. Please meet the group at the Bowling Green station at 1pm.

    I live in Brooklyn not far from the Brooklyn Ferry. I would love to come to this event. Is it not possible to choose a meeting place on Governor's Island? Travel is especially slower on Sundays via the subway. Thank you!
