Governors Island, 09.29.13
On the last weekend of its 2013 season, Governors Island invited the public to take a preview of its new park under construction. The plans include a Hammock Grove (50 hammocks under the trees) and The Hills (four hills with great views of the New York harbor). It was a privilege to see the island's development. I was here on the first day it opened for the 2013 season last May and I can see that the proposed development has progressed so much. I look forward to the 2014 season knowing that the trees will be a little taller by then and the hills would have reached their proposed heights. More power Governors Island!
