Arts and Activities

Riding on the breezy ferry from Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 6 to Governor’s Island, you’ll feel as though you’re escaping Manhattan’s daily tumult for just a few hours. The 172-acre land mass provides a quick and quirky getaway, filled with activities for all ages.

Borrow binoculars from the Audubon club or head to the Urban Farm to learn more about the wildlife on the Island. For more manmade majesty, visit artist Jacob Hashimoto’s commission, an outdoor installation comprised of thousands of delicate rice paper kites. Watch the Island’s schedule next month: The New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) will mount their first off-site exhibition, a group show featuring local legend Jerry the Marble Faun.
