Governor's Island and Brooklyn Bridge

About 9 miles total walking. We will take the free Governor's Island ferry from the Battery Maritime building  and spend about 3 hours on the island, first touring Fort Jay and Castle Williams and then walking the island. We will break for lunch on the island; bring your lunch or try the food trucks. About 5 miles total walking on the island. 

Then, we will take the ferry from Governor's Island to Pier 6 in Brooklyn Bridge Park and walk along the Brooklyn Heights Promenade to Brooklyn Bridge Park at Pier 1, walk under the Brooklyn Bridge and past Jane's Carousel, then walk across the Brooklyn Bridge back to Manhattan, ending our walk at City Hall Park. About 4 miles total walking from the ferry to City Hall.

Feel free to join us just for Governor's Island and take the ferry back to Manhattan on your own. If you do not want to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge you can join us as we walk to the bridge and catch the subway in Brooklyn. 

MEET: at 10:30 a.m. at the Battery Maritime Building located at 10 South Street, adjacent to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal and take the 11:00 (free) ferry to Governor's Island.
