Nolan Park, Governors Island

Governors Island is a 172-acre island in New York Harbor, within the borough of Manhattan in New York City. It is located approximately 800 yards south of Manhattan island, and is separated from Brooklyn to the east by the 400-yard-wide Buttermilk Channel. The National Park Service administers a small portion of the north of the island as the Governors Island National Monument, including two former military fortifications named Fort Jay and Castle Williams, while the Trust for Governors Island operates the remaining 150 acres, including 52 historic buildings, as a public park. Much of the island is built on artificial turf, added in the 1900s with the dumping of 103 acres of fill to the south of the original island.
