Big City Blues
Lower Manhattan, NYC
As seen from Governors Island. A 172 acre island in the heart of New York Harbor, the island is only 800 yards from Lower Manhattan, and even closer to Brooklyn. For almost two centuries, Governors Island was a military base - home to the US Army and later the Coast Guard, and closed to the public.
Since 2014, Governors Island is a destination with great public open space, as well as educational, not-for-profit, and commercial facilities.
