NYC Parks urges caution during the snow storm predicted for Monday afternoon through Tuesday evening. Heavy ice and snow can cause hazardous conditions in parks, including falling branches and treacherous frozen park paths. NYC Parks advises New Yorkers to avoid using parks until Wednesday morning, when we will provide an update on park conditions.

9) 79th Street Boat Basin

From the Boat Basin you can see and hear the hypnotic activity of boat life. Many of the moored boats house water-borne New Yorkers who make this their home. On a sunny weekend, yachts pull in to refuel and sail boats glide by. If you feel like sitting and watching, a good place is the tree-shade hillside north of the Boat Basin.
