KAP at Governors Island, Saturday June 14, 2014 @ 11:30am

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.

What: KAP at Governors Island

Where: Governors Island

When: Saturday  June 14, 2014 or Rain Date: Sunday June 15, 2014

Time: 11:30am

This will be a great opportunity to get great KAP images of lower Manhattan. Bring your picnic baskets and kites & cameras and have fun.

Directions to the Governors Island Manhattan Ferry
The Governors Island ferry departs from the Battery Maritime Building located at 10 South Street, adjacent to the Staten Island Ferry in Lower Manhattan. The ferry terminal is accessible as follows:
By Subway
1 to South Ferry station
4, 5 to Bowling Green station
R to Whitehall St. station
From Manhattan the ferry's departure is 10:30am and/or 11am, get there early these ferry's get packed

By Car to Brooklyn

Go to Brooklyn Bridge Park

Pier 6 is were you will pick up the ferry which is at the South end of the park.

I will be taking the 11am and/or 11:30am, get there early these ferry's get packed.

If you go to Brooklyn by car your best bet for parking is garage. I suggest Kwik Park garage at 55 Washington St, Brooklyn, NY it will cost $24 for the day and a 15min walk to pier 6.

    KAP was great! I bought a 73" wide delta at the Governors Island gift shop for a fanatastic price and flew it today. Also able to photograph guests at Jazz Lawn Party.
