Community Trip to Governors Island

RSVP Required. This is a FREE event.

Join New York Adventure Club for a community day on Governors Island as we ferry out to see the historic military buildings and forts, eat at local food vendors, and relax under the sun. 

RECESS New York will be hosting a day of outdoor fun on the same day including Bocce on Colonel's Row, free bike rides, and beer/wine tent with guest DJs.


Hi All!

I look forward to seeing all of you for tomorrow's trip to Governors Island! This is a very casual New York Adventure Club trip, so if you want to visit Governors Island later in the day or leave our group to explore the island on your own, don't hesitate to do so.

Below are some additional details concerning the event:

We will be taking the 12pm ferry from the Battery Maritime Building as a group, so please arrive no later than 11:45am. Ferries leave every 30 minutes, so don't fret if you miss the ferry.

Ferry rides are $2 -- tickets can be purchased on site or advance on the NY Waterways website or by downloading the NY Waterways app.

Meeting Point 
Battery Maritime Building - 10 South St.

This building is located at the end of Whitehall St. in front FDR Drive / the small road loop for cars (here is a picture of it)

I will plan to meet just inside the front doors of the BMB.

1 - South Ferry Loop (Closest Option)

R - Whitehall St.

4, 5 - Bowling Green

If you are lost, running late, or have any questions on the day of the event, you can text me directly at (636)[masked].
