Discover the hidden gems of Governors Island on a virtual tour with Untapped New York tour guide Mandy Edgecombe, a former National Park Ranger and current NPS volunteer. Governors Island reopened to the public on July 15th and Mandy will take our Insiders there to discover the island’s history, from Henry Hudson and Dutch settlement to the French and Indian War to Frank Sinatra.
As you explore the island with Mandy, you will learn about its natural, military, and cultural history. The island is full of natural wonders (and wonders that look natural but are actually man-made), historic sites like Castle Williams, and stunning views of the Lower Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty.
Tomorrow’s live event at 12PM EST is organized for Untapped New York Insiders — get two months free with code JOINUS. A video of the talk will also be made available to all our Insiders afterward in the Video Archive section of our website.
