Governors Island

This small island in the middle of New York Harbor is open to the public during the summer. Cars aren’t allowed, which makes it perfect for cycling.

Get there by ferry from Lower Manhattan or Brooklyn Bridge Park, and grab a Citi Bike at Soissons Landing, where the Manhattan ferry docks, or Yankee Pier, where the Brooklyn ferry docks. The entire island is only 2.5 miles in circumference, so ride around the whole thing and explore along the way!

The island is only open to visitors during summer months. Find more info about Governors Island.
