Hey, It IS Called Governors Island


The Governor’s office (with apostrophe) just issued a press release saying Pataki earmarked $30 million for “the preservation and redevelopment” of Governors Island (without apostrophe) in his budget proposal. Next month, the state agency overseeing the adaptive reuse of the former military site will be putting out a request for proposals to find out who wants to build something there. Mind you, it’s supposed to be a “world-class destination”–and it’s supposed to pay for the island’s upkeep.
