Governor's Island

Pattern Category: Places

Object Type: Dinner and Dessert Wares


This plate's view is of Governor's Island in New York Bay.  It is quite similar to Andrew Stevenson's View of Governor's Island. (See in this exhibit).  It is about a quarter of a mile from the Battery. It was named because the colonial governors in the 17th century spent their summers there. In the center of the view is Castle Williams.
