Getting There

Porch Stomp is set in the beautiful greenery of Governors Island's Nolan Park, located on the northeastern corner of the Island, as well as on other areas throughout the Island.  Getting there is one short ferry ride away! 

The Governors Island ferry runs on regular intervals from Manhattan to Soissons Landing and from Brooklyn to Yankee Pier. In addition, NYC Ferry runs at regular intervals from Wall Street Pier 11 to Yankee Pier. The ferry ride takes about 8 minutes. Ferry tickets may be reserved in advance. In 2024, reservations are not required, but are encouraged as the ferries will fill up. If you are a Porch Stomp 2024 Artist, we STRONGLY encourage you to aim to take the ferry BEFORE the ferry that gets you there for your set time. Visitors to the Island no longer need to choose a return time when booking ferry tickets – you may leave the Island on any ferry you choose. For more information about the Governors Island ferry and to make a reservation click HERE.
