NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Governors Island is open one month earlier than usual.
The island opened early this year to allow more time to enjoy some time outside.

Park officials have also announced special evening hours, one night only, this Friday. The park will remain open until 9 p.m. for a rare chance to see one of the best, unobstructed sunsets anywhere in the city.
