Bring Your Mask: Even though Porch Stomp is outdoors, you will need a mask for the ride there. Masks are required to board the Governors Island Ferry and NYC Ferry and while inside the cabin except for brief periods while eating, drinking, or taking oral medications.

Take a Citibike! Citibike is a great way to get around the Island! See HERE for a map of Citbike docs. 

 

Prepare to Walk: With 17 stages and more than 200 acts to see, you may end up covering a lot of ground! Choose your footwear wisely, and if you have small children, consider a stroller or wagon.

 

HERE is a map of Porch Stomp 2022 stages. Note that the fastest way to get from Nolan Park to Colonel’s Row is through Fort Jay, which is open to the public and will feature live music from 11am-4pm! 

Embrace the Serendipitous: With so many concerts happening all at once, the best way to enjoy Porch Stomp is to simply wander and see what you discover! 

 

Stay Safe in the Sun!  Porch Stomp is a long day in the sun! Be sure to wear sunblock, and bring a refillable water bottle. See HERE for a map of water fountain locations. 

 

Stay Charged: Given the limited access to power on Governors Island, we highly recommend bringing a extra battery pack for your phone. 

 

Accessibility: All ferries going to and from Governors Island, as well as the grounds of the island itself, are accessible to those in wheelchairs. Not all buildings on the island are wheelchair-accessible. Building 110, located next to Soissons Landing, is wheelchair accessible. Wheelchair-accessible portable toilets are located throughout the grounds. Wheelchair-accessible trams are available to guests Friday-Sunday.

 

If you have accessibility issues, Porch Stomp may be able to arrange for security to pick you up in a golf cart and take you to your desired location. Please email mmnyporchstomp@gmail.com to request.
