Join us at Asser Levy Recreation Center for the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. Volunteers will be painting and cleaning up the center after it sustained damage by Hurricane Sandy. Registration is required to participate in the service project. For additional information or to register, please click here.     

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President's national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems. In April 2009, Mayor Bloomberg launched NYC Service, the citywide initiative tasked with setting a new standard for how cities can tap the power of their people to tackle their most pressing challenges. This year, on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Day, the Mayor’s Office and City Agencies will be coordinating service projects in the communities affected by Hurricane Sandy. NYC Parks will be participating in the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Day of Service by offering volunteer projects around the five boroughs, including Asser Levy Recreation Center.

Know Before You Go

PlaygroundsAsser Levy Playground

This playground is closed so it can be expanded by creating a new active recreation area on the former Asser Levy Place. This new park space will contain a diverse mix of outdoor recreational opportunities. Neighborhood residents of all ages and abilities will soon be able to play ping pong, badminton, volleyball, chess, soccer, football, t-ball, exercise, jog, practice yoga or enjoy some shaded seating in what previously was an underutilized, two-block-long street. New park features will include an artificial turf field, exercise track, adult fitness equipment, benches, tables, drinking fountains, park lighting and trees. The Asser Levy Recreation Center’s close proximity to the new park space will provide opportunities for outdoor programming, and views of the striking architecture of this landmark building will be enhanced.
Anticipated Completion: Fall 2014
