Gone Fishing: Governors Island
This summer marks the first season that Governors Island has opened its shores to people interested in fishing. There are many locations open for the sport in all boroughs of New York City, but none are quite like ours. This Island boasts views of Manhattan’s skyline, and the Statue of Liberty, like no where else on land. Also, as we are at the foot of Manhattan’s Battery, we sit right at the intersection of both the East River, and the Hudson River. Along our shores are both churning tides, and calm waters, where fish are sure to congregate. So come out to Governors Island with your fishing pole and gear, and enjoy a nice day on the water, looking over at the Statue of Liberty, the Manhattan skyline, and Ellis Island!
