A Very Hot Trip to Governor’s Island

Visions of my World

Located south of Manhattan, lies Governor’s Island –  a tiny island that was used as a military installation during the Revolutionary War, then an army outpost, then a Coast Guard installation. There are two forts located on the island which we will explore in later weeks (both of which are National Monuments). There are houses throughout the island, several churches, a synagogue, and various parks. The island is accessible by a ferry from the southern tip of Manhattan, as well as from Brooklyn. Here is a quick overview of the north end of the island, as I didn’t explore the southern side due to my schedule.
