Governor's Island is roughly south of Manhattan Island and can be reached by ferry in summer and autumn. A ferry ride from the Battery Maritime Building pier in Manhattan to Governor's Island costs only $2 for round trip tickets. If you look at it from the map, Governor Island looks like an ice cream, so I gave it a nickname called Ice Cream Island myself. There are not many inhabitants on the island, but everyone has a good family. Many people travel to and from Manhattan on their own speedboats every day. The environment on the island is very good and suitable for leisure activities.
Governor's Island is a famous island in New York. It's suitable for children. It's worth visiting when it's sunny. The tickets are cheap and the weather is good. I heard it's good here. I came here and almost lost my way. But when I arrived, I felt it was all worth it.
The old grass-green wharf next to SOUTHFERRY in Manhattan is ferry to Governor's Island. It only lasts half a year, from May to September. Governor Island, as its name implies, is the seat of government established by the Dutch and British after they seized land from the Spanish, so it is called Governors Island; it is very close, and it takes only 5-6 minutes to arrive. You see, the southernmost tip of Manhattan is still in front of us. It turned out that the place I always saw was Governor's Island. The nearest to Manhattan is the least known. Even my classmates and friends who have been in America for 30 years don't know! Churches and colonial buildings are well preserved here. It's interesting to see some works of art scattered on the lawn. A week on the lawn is a light beige farmhouse. Birds sing and wind singing. Paradise Peach Garden. There are also good places to rent bicycles to travel around the island, listen to the sea waves, blow the sea breeze, and let go of the hollow spirit.
Governor's Island is just south of Manhattan Island South Pier. The ferry will arrive in five minutes. It's free before 11 a.m. on Saturdays and free after 11 a.m. for three dollars. There are two fortresses on the island. One is round near the upper wharf. The other is a sinking fortress in the northeast of the island. On the fifth corner, there are trenches outside. The house inside the fortress encloses a square building. The island also has a good view of the Statue of Liberty.
The Governor's Island was a military forbidden area before, so it was impossible to visit before. It has only been opened to the outside world in recent years. We are lucky to have a look at it. There are many ancient buildings on the island and they are well preserved. Anyway, we still feel very meaningful.
The first time I set foot on Governor's Island. Two hundred years ago, the arduous task of defending Manhattan fell on the defenders of the island. It's a place for New Yorkers to play and entertain, but you can still inadvertently see the swords and swords of that year.
