Look into the past of Governors Island and talk about its exciting transformation and future! In these FREE one-hour walking tours, we will examine how historic preservation, innovative design and environmental stewardship make the Island what it is today - one of the most unique public spaces in New York City.

Walking tours begin at the Governors Island Welcome Center at Soissons Landing and are hosted by the Friends of Governors Island. All tours are weather permitting.
