About The Landmark
Fort Jay and Castle Williams are the centerpieces of the 22 acre National Monument on Governors Island that is administered by the National Park Service. The fortifications played a vital role in New York’s early history. Today they remind us of our military heritage and provide a tangible link to our country’s early quest for independence.
The remainder of the island is run by the City’s Trust for Governors Island. The entire island has now become a summertime oasis for New Yorkers and tourists.
