Early Hours - for Steward, Partner and Leaders Circle-level members

Steward and Partner members, along with the Leaders Circle, are invited to enjoy Early Hours each weekend starting at 9am, June through August. Early Hours are a great opportunity to enjoy the Island before it opens to the public: enjoy a run or bike ride along the Island’s 7 miles of car-free path, a breakfast at Three Peaks Lodge at Collective Retreats with a view of the Statue of Liberty or simply soak up the sun with these rare opportunities for silence and solitude.

Note: Ferries for Early Access Hours depart from the Battery Maritime Building in Manhattan. Steward, Partner and Leaders Circle members can show their membership cards at the security desk to board the 9:00am ferry to the Island. As always, ferry fare is waived for members!

*This benefit is offered only to Steward, Partner and Leaders Circle members. See full list of membership levels
