Art Event Takes Over Governors Island

    On Saturday, we hopped the free ferry to Governors Island and checked out Figment, an all-volunteer, non-commercial art event that took place over the weekend. For those who haven’t been to the island yet, it’s one of the nicest green spaces in New York City, with great views of Manhattan, Brooklyn and New Jersey. It’s also full of historic buildings, including a fort and early 19th-century houses. Legally part of Manhattan, the island sits just across the Buttermilk Channel from Brooklyn, and the ferry ride takes only a few minutes.
