We welcomed more visitors than ever, and we’re still the park for New Yorkers

75% of the 800,000 people who enjoyed Governors Island in 2017 hail from the five boroughs.

You discovered over 80 free visual arts exhibits, hands-on education, festivals and more!

Over 10,000 volunteer hours helped keep your park green, clean and sustainable.

We offered more ways to get around, dine and play!

We’re investing in building a year-round, 24/7 community.

Thank you for making memories with us on Governors Island in 2017!
