Saturday, August 22nd: Governors Island History Walk

    Date: 08/22/2015

    Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

    Location: Governors Island (Governors Island, Governors Island)

    Price: $10, registration required

    Despite years of history, for most New Yorkers Governors Island might as well have popped out of the ocean when it became open to the general public in 2003. Join Albert and James for a one-hour walk through this amazing facet of the NY harbor.

    We’ll talk about cross-dressing Governors, the Wright Brothers, Revolutionary War submarines, the first gay rights organization in America, hammocks, a landmark case for freedom of speech, mini-golf, Cold War politics and more. In addition we will get some AMAZING views of lower Manhattan, Statue of Liberty and the New York harbor. We will also pay our respects to a ventilation shaft.

    This walk meets at Governors Island, and you’ll receive exact meeting instructions the day before the walk.
