About Governors Island

Governors Island is a 172-acre island in the heart of New York Harbor. Just minutes from lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn waterfront by ferry, the Island is a popular year-round destination for New Yorkers and visitors from around the world. A former military base closed to the public for nearly two centuries, Governors Island has been transformed over the last decade into a vibrant public destination. An award-winning park with winding paths and extraordinary vistas complements its dozens of historic buildings, year-round educational and cultural facilities, rich arts and culture program and 22-acre National Monument managed by the National Park Service.

Looking ahead, Governors Island is envisioned to grow as a dynamic public place, with expanded educational, non-profit and commercial facilities. With panoramic gorgeous city views, relaxation rooms, saunas and steam baths among more than 20 spa experiences, QC NY is the cherry on top to complete your day of relaxation in this sensational context.
