A bike tour of Governors Island, historically a 172-acre military base that is just an 8-minute ferry ride from Wall Street, and now is home to the Governors Island National Monument. I have a specific path and agenda, but it's flexible. The tour covers the past, present and future of Governors Island. The island is officially recognized by the New York state legislature as the birthplace of New York being the first land Dutch settlers set foot upon. From 1800 to 1996, it was used as a military facility by the US Federal Government and houses three 18th century fortresses. In 2003, the island was returned to the state and city of New York. It has since become a unique, modern, urban incubator for arts, science and cultural institutions and also has a large award-winning public park. We'll also discuss modern additions like an urban farm, and artist collectives, even a public high school! Like the Highline Park in Manhattan, the Island is creating an innovative, new model of an urban public space. I've studied a great deal about the island and am able to answer most questions guests have put to me. I aim toward tailoring my talks to my guests' specific areas of interests.
Price includes full day of bike rental; helmets available.
I'm a 26-year resident of New York City and licensed NYC tour guide. I specialize in parks and outdoor spaces, having given tours of Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Highline as well. I provide distant history as well as recent, and give visitors a sense of socio-economic forces that shape both these beautiful public spaces but the fabric of New York City itself. I hope my guests walk away with a good understanding of how these spaces came to be created, what they've become, and what may lay the future for them.

Где вы побываете
Recently open to the public, Governors Island is just being discovered by tourists. It's a unique—and very family-friendly—day-trip for active NYC visitors. Before or after the tour, you'll find many arts, cultural and sporting activities as well as great food and drinks! The park also offers amazing views of Lady Liberty, NYC skylines and harbor, and has about 50 hammocks and countless places to relax and enjoy a beautiful New York day outdoors.
