• Government offices and courts are closed.

• There is no mail delivery.

• All city public schools are closed.

• Alternate side parking is suspended, and you don’t have to pay the parking meter.

• There is no garbage, recycling, or organics pickup. If Monday is your garbage day, put out your garbage after 5pm Monday evening. If Monday is your recycling day, wait until next week to put out your recycling. If Monday is your organics day, put the items out for your next organics collection day.

• The New York City subway will operate on a Sunday schedule.

• All Brooklyn Public Library locations will be closed from Saturday, May 24 through Monday, May 26.

• Both the Prospect Park (357 9th Street) and Armory (361 15th Street) YMCAs will be open on Memorial Day, but only from 7am-8pm.

Have a fun and safe weekend! If you take any photos of you and your friends and family enjoying a picnic in Prospect Park, a local bar or restaurant, or even just your stoop, send them our way at and we’ll post them on the site!
