The Easiest Way To Get Away

Governors Island is a 172 acre island in the heart of New York Harbor. It’s only 800 yards from Lower Manhattan, and even closer to Brooklyn. It is a world unto itself, unique and full of promise.

​The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Arts Center at Governors Island opens 9/19.

The first year-round, permanent tenant dedicated to Arts and Culture on Governors Island, LMCC's Arts Center will be open to the public Thursdays-Sundays for the rest of the season, with an artist residency program continuing through the winter. Explore this this expansive, beautifully renovated facility to see exhibitions, open studios, artist talks, workshops and performances, or to visit GI’s first indoor café. More info.
