Description

Historic Governors Island, in the heart of New York Harbor was a Coast Guard base for many years. Now 175 acres of it has within the past several years been acquired by the city for a multi-use public facility. The many imaginative adaptive reuses include a public school, parks and recreation, arts exhibitions, museums, theaters, concerts and more. In this video, Robert Pirani, director of the Regional Plan Association outlines the development of the present Governors Island revitalization program. © 2004 The Greenpoint Video Project • gvproj.org
