Our recommendation for getting to Governors Ball

There's no clear cut way to get to Governors Ball as it all depends on where you are staying. When I last attended I stayed in Queens and simply walked across the RFK Bridge. If you are anywhere in NYC you can potentially just take the subway to somewhere near the RFK Bridge on either the Manhattan or Queens side and walk to Gov Ball. Note that it is a bit of a hike as it is a 30+ minute walk, but plenty of people do it. The other option is to go with either the official Gov Ball shuttle or the ferry.
