Two years of the Hills on Governors Island


Timothy Schenck

We’re celebrating our anniversary - of the Hills, that is! Two years ago this week, on July 19, 2016, Governors Island opened 10 brand new acres of park space to New Yorkers for climbing, sliding, exploring and taking in some of the best views of New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan skyline. Since then, hundreds of thousands of visitors have explored the unique landscape of the Hills, enjoying a brand new relationship with the Harbor.

In honor of the Hills, we’re looking back at the park in your pictures over the past two years.
