Susan Carey Dempsey, Executive Director, Governors Island Alliance

The mission of the Governors Island Alliance is to celebrate the Island’s rich history, create memorable parks and public spaces, and ensure appropriate reuse of the Island and its historic structures.  Since 1995, the Alliance has worked collaboratively to return the Island to the people of New York.  The goal of redeveloping the Island as a great civic space was the basis for the 2003 transfer from the Federal Government to New York and the National Park Service.
