Governors Island, ca. 2014?

Image from the long-under-wraps West 8 master plan for Governors Island. City takeover announced Sunday. I remember the mounds from Round One, but I am waiting to see a plan. More here.

The unrenovated island opens to the public June 5. FIGMENT is already planning a new art mini-golf course, and an architect-designed pavilion a la P.S.1.
