A former military base virtually unknown to New Yorkers for nearly two centuries, Governors Island has been activated into a beloved seasonal destination for recreation, arts, culture, learning and play with a new, resilient-designed park overlooking the Harbor. With a park nearly complete and destination appeal, the Island is moving into the next chapter of it’s transformation, with the activation of 1.5M square feet of historic buildings, and a new planning framework for development of up to 4.5M square feet of new education, research and cultural facilities on the Island’s Southern half.
