Safely Enjoy Spooky Season At Governors Island’s Pumpkin Point

Just because trick-or-treating will be a little more solitary this year doesn’t mean you have to let jack-o-lantern season pass you by. To celebrate autumn — now that we’re really in it — take a trip to unofficial Lower Manhattan backyard Governors Island, where its annual pumpkin patch returns on Saturday, October 24.

Dubbed Pumpkin Point, the patch will feature thousands of artfully arranged pumpkins paired with fall-themed decorations. Visitors are invited to roam the patch, provided they are masked and keep a safe distance of at least six feet from the other pumpkinheads. Best of all, a visit nets you a free pumpkin, which you can carve into or draw on at home or simply use as a festive doorstop. 

The patch is open from 10a to 6p daily through November 1 at Governors Island’s Nolan Park. See Governors Island’s website for ferry times.
