Governors Island National Monument
Since 1916, the American people have entrusted the National Park Service with the care of their national parks. With the help of volunteers and park partners, we are proud to safeguard these more than 400 places and to share their stories with more than 275 million visitors every year.
Governors Island National Monument is a unit of the National Park Service in New York City. Established in 2001, we share the stories of America's longest-running military base in the heart of America's greatest city.
