Over 20 Spartans came out to our tour of Governors Island on Saturday August 20th, 2011. Part of the group included Kathryn Vetter our Endowed Scholarship winner as well as several Spartans who are brand new to NYC (some just graduated in May).
Everyone enjoyed the chance to learn more about NYC as well as the beautiful walk with the magnificent views of the Statue of Liberty and the NYC skyline.
Just a 7 minute ferry ride from lower Manhattan, Governors Island is the largest undiscovered park in New York City and it will be getting bigger every year. The tour will give you the opportunity to meet and network with other Spartans and enjoy great views of NYC and the Statue of Liberty (the photographs below were taken from Governors Island).
