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.

This text is part of Parks’ Historical Signs Project and can be found posted within the park.

This playground honors the memory of Susan Caserta (1939-1994), a dedicated mother and community member. Born in Manhattan on December 20, 1939, Susan Boyarsky attended Jane Adams Vocational High School and Bronx Community College, before marrying Eugene Caserta. Together they had three children, Barbara, Debbie, and Joseph, all of whom attended P.S. 106 and J.H.S 127, where Susan Caserta volunteered for 20 years.

Susan Caserta spent a great deal of time at this playground, adjacent to P.S. 106. She was active in the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, but when her children began attending school, Caserta dedicated most of her time to the Parents Association of P.S. 106. She served as president for several years, publishing and editing Parents Press a newsletter that allowed parents, students, and faculty to keep informed about school events and issues.
