    I'd like to do a tour in June and then one later in the season. I need to confirm it with the park, but right now my only options in June are the 8th or the 29th. 8th is short notice, and only the second weekend of the season so that might not be doable. I'll update again once I have a firm date.

    Once I have the details, I'll post them along with the e-mail address to reserve a spot.

    One consideration, when coming with big camera gear, is that cars are not allowed on the island, and parking can be difficult (or expensive if not available on street) in the area since it's right near South Street Seaport. On the other hand, access via public transportation is pretty good (the ferry terminal to the island is right next to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal by the Battery.

    The 29th would be great for me. No problem for me to get to the Seaport by subway.

    The 29th works better for me, planning-wise, but remember that weekend is a big tourist weekend (NY Pride) and rooms for folks from out of town may be hard to come by/ more expensive.

    I know it's short notice but is anyone up for an informal* tour on Sunday June 8th at 12:00? Ferries from Manhattan leave every hour on the hour (promptly) and return on the half hour. So, we would meet up on the island at around 12:15. Tour would run around 1-2 hours depending on everyone's interest but since the island is open on Sunday, you can drop off at any point and wander on your own and catch any ferry back to Manhattan (ferry is free, tickets not required, but sometimes there can be a very long line and/or a full boat but that's usually on a special event weekend). I'm going to limit this tour to around 15 analog photographers only (any format). Please PM me if you are planning to attend so I can reserve you a spot.

    *I haven't been to Governors Island yet this year, and haven't done a tour since last October so I'm going to be rusty on the facts/history. I'm planning on using Sunday to get ideas of what would be of interest to more serious photographers (those who aren't taking their photos with a cell phone for instance) so I can refine the tour route for the future.

    Anyone interested for a tour on the 8th? I'm about to send a write-up to my NPS contact to go on their website but I may not bother if there's no interest.

    Thanks,
    Dan
