Time Out says

If you’re looking for a fun fall activity to do with kids in the city this autumn, but don’t feel like traveling all the way up to the Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze, then we have a great option for you a bit closer to home. (Although, a caveat: You’ll have to carve the pumpkins yourself.)

Once again this year, Pumpkin Point is set to return to Governors Island. The family-friendly pumpkin patch will bring thousands of pumpkins to the island, transforming historic Nolan Park into a picture-perfect fall wonderland. Best of all? Visitors are welcome to pick out a pumpkin to take home in exchange for a small donation.

In addition to the marvelous gourds, programming at the space is set to include free, Halloween-inspired arts and crafts activities, story-telling, live music and more. A selection of Governors Island vendors will also be offering food and beverages on-site, autumn brews included! See you at the patch!
