Peter Mauss Photographs Governors Island

Governors Island is the historic island and public park off Lower Manhattan. The island is accessible by ferry from Manhattan and Brooklyn, and open from May through September.

Pentagram designed the signage and wayfinding using a new typeface designed by Michael Beirut for the project. In addition to the park, which has become a nexus for art and events, historic Fort Jay is operated by the National Park Service. The Harbor School, a public high school, is also on the island.

Peter Mauss photographed the project for the designers. More information on the project and more of Peter’s photographs are at Pentagram.
