City Parks Closed Until Further Notice

This is probably the most sternly worded alert we’ve ever received from Notify NYC. Please take it seriously.

ALERT issued 10/29/11 at 8:00 PM. No one should enter any City Park until further notice. Heavy snow and strong wind gusts, combined with full leaves still on trees, are damaging thousands of trees in parks throughout the City. This is creating an elevated and ongoing danger of falling branches and trees. City crews are working to address the damage and will continue throughout the storm.

It sounds like a good night to stay home folks.
