Tour the Hills in a Hardhat


Go behind the construction fence and get a sneak peak at the Hills on Governors Island.

The Hills, rising 25 to 70 feet above the Island, will open to all on July 19, but visitors can get a sneak peek on a hard hat tour with Island staff and volunteers. Visitors can gather at Liggett Hall Arch and 40 visitors may participate in each tour, which lasts about one hour. Space is on a first come, first served basis. Hard hats and vests will be provided, but participants must wear closed-toe shoes. Additional tours will be scheduled throughout the season from now through July 19 when the Hills open. Stay tuned!

The tour this Saturday (06/11) will leave from Ligget Hall Arch at 3:00pm.
