Governors Island (that tiny island located just south of the bottom tip of Manhattan) is expecting to draw more than 200,000 visitors this summer with their newest public art installation. Titled Plot 09: This World & Nearer Ones, the city’s first art quadrennial will open June 27 and feature 19 art commissions by artists worldwide.
Just hop on the quick ferry ride which picks up at the Battery Maritime Building. While you’re there take some time to explore the rest of the island, a former military base which has been open to the public since 2005. The island is also available for private events – ask us for some of our great themed proposals!
