Getting to Porch Stomp
Governors Island is only accessible via ferry -- you cannot drive a car there. The Governors Island ferry schedule is HERE. Ferries run every 20 minutes (!!) from lower Manhattan (the Battery Maritime Building), starting at 10am, and every 45 minutes from Brooklyn (Pier 6) starting at 11am. The ferries do fill up, so be sure to get there early to get in line. The Ferry costs $3 round-trip (you only pay on the way there), but is FREE before 12pm, so that's a great incentive to arrive early!!
In addition to the Governors Island Ferry, you can also take NYC Ferry! NYC Ferry runs every 30 minutes from Wall Street Pier 11 starting at 10am, and costs $2.75. Schedule is HERE. This is an especially good option if you miss the Governors Island Ferry, or the line is too long -- Pier 11 is about a 7 minute walk from the Battery Maritime Building.
The ferry ride to Governors Island takes approximately 8 minutes.
