KAP at Governors Island in June
We will meet at the South end of the Parade Grounds between 11:30am and 12:00pm. The first two ferries from either Manhattan and Brooklyn are free and it is free coming back.
Note: there is high helicopter traffic, but if we fly within the perimeter of the island and stay less then 500' high we should have no problems.
Bring plenty of water and food concession stands are limited, but are available.
