There are a ton of different events that take place on Governors Island on a monthly basis. Many electronic dance festivals have been held there and the experience, as reported by many, is absolutely unbelievable. Being that close to New York City while still being far enough away and secluded is so fun for the majority of the people who take part. Now, the island is going under some rezoning ideas and it will be completed in the near future.
- The island has been home for some excellent festivals over the past couple of years.
- Many people consider it to be a hidden gem in the city as it is very easy to miss it.
- As the rezoning process takes place, events will still be going on at a slower rate.
““Governors Island’s 43-acre park has made it the jewel of New York Harbor,” said Mayor de Blasio in a statement. “The Island is now set to dramatically expand its role in our city’s economy as we turn its southern half into a center of innovation and education.””
