I've been running low on photos so I was glad that someone reminded me I had photos from last summer from Governor's Island (thanks Jay!) Governor's Island is a former Coast Guard base in New York Harbor long accessible only by Coast Guard personnel and their families, and before that it was occupied by the U.S. Army. The Coast Guard left the Island in 1996 and in the last few years it has been open to the public on summer weekends.
This photo is from a section of the island called Nolan Park where the officers and their families were housed. There are 15 beautiful clapboard victorian houses in Nolan Park that have recently been restored and are all in the National Historic Register. They were built between 1857 and 1907. Some of them are open to the public and they are beautiful inside. I'd recommend a visit if you can!
