The Abandoned Homes of Governors Island

Have you been to visit Governors Island this summer? For home lovers and New York City residents, it's worth the free ferry ride to check out the abandoned officers' homes and explore the 172 acre park just 800 yards from Lower Manhattan (and even closer to Brooklyn)...

On our visit, we loved the Discarded Chair Dragon by Benjamin Jones & Anna Hecker — just one of the many (hundreds) artworks on display all around the island.

We'll share a more detailed home tour of the Admiral's House soon!
