Looks like Governors Island’s offering of letting folks visit late Friday nights will be a regular thing this season. We may be wrong but we recall not being a continuous offering last year. Well, this year of 2018 we’ll all have the chance to visit the island on Fridays from Memorial Day weekend up until September 14. Yours truly is surely looking forward to heading over with my cam(s) and tripod for some cool long exposure night shots of Manhattan!
According to the official site:
Ferries during Late Fridays run from 10 South Street in Lower Manhattan.
Ferries will depart Lower Manhattan at 5:30, 6:30, and 7:30 pm.
Ferries will return to Lower Manhattan at 6:00, 7:00, 8:00, 9:00 and 10:00 pm.
Also, be sure to consult with their Ferry Schedule page.
“”Visitors during Late Friday nights will be able to enjoy the Island’s park spaces and historic settings with the backdrop of the city skyline and sunsets over the harbor. Select season-long arts, cultural and science programming in the Island’s historic former officer’s homes in Nolan Park and Colonels Row will remain open during late Fridays.””
