Important Winter Storm-Related Service Changes

New York City parks are now open. We continue to urge caution in parks under wintry conditions: parks paths can be slippery, snow cover can cover frozen lakes and bodies of water, and branches may have fallen. If you see a fallen branch call 311.

Some recreation centers will open from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. today with limited staffing.

For more information, please visit our Storm Update page.

Where can you jive to live music, blow gigantic bubbles, laugh with crazy clowns, and literally tumble across the New York New Jersey harbor? At the Governors Island Alliance's 9th Annual Family Festival, of course. A celebration of the summer season on Governors Island, GIA's Family Festival is a free and creative arts and harbor education-focused jamboree.

Last year GIA's Family Festival drew more than 5,000 visitors from all over the tri-state region, all of whom enjoyed entertaining shows by The Maybelles, Astrograss for Kids, and Arm-of-the-Sea Theater among others, and partook in the fun and imaginative activities hosted by a variety of local arts and educational organizations. Join GIA this year as we again jam-pack opening day with exciting arts & crafts activities, invigorating music and theatrical performances, and innovative educational games about the diverse ecology as well as the rich history of the New York New Jersey harbor.
