Parks Welcomes Maoz Vegetarian To Central Park
Wednesday, June 13, 2012
Parks and Recreation is pleased to welcome Maoz Vegetarian to the Harlem Meer in Central Park. Maoz Vegetarian’s newest location in Central Park is its seventh location in New York City, and the latest is the first in the Upper East Side.
“The Harlem Meer is an unforgettable destination of New York City’s Central Park, the park that is a centerpiece of New York life,” said Parks & Recreation Commissioner Adrian Benepe. “The addition of Maoz Vegetarian to the menu of options offered to visitors of Central Park continues to provide those of all tastes a choice meal when experiencing the park. Moving beyond classic New York City cart foods, visitors of different tastes can now extend their time at Central Park with a vegetarian choice with some of Maoz Vegetarian’s delicious options such as the falafel sandwich.”
Maoz Vegetarian at the Harlem Meer will operate seven days a week from 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., subject to seasonal changes and weather related circumstances. Their menu includes falafel sandwiches, salad boxes containing falafel balls, pita with salad, Belgian fries, sweet potato fries, and assorted muffins, along with beverage options such as fresh squeezed juice, fresh mint lemonade, fresh tea, assorted sodas, bottled water, and coffee. Four tables for dining are located in front of the brick concession site which are perfect for casual dining. Maoz Vegetarian is contracted for an eight year term, closing no earlier than mid-November for each operating term.
The Parks Department has been working since 2008 to attract a diverse spectrum of high quality food vendors, in order to satisfy New York City’s hunger for an eclectic plate.

East 72nd St Playground
The East 72nd St Playground is closed for construction. It will reopen this summer. Central Park Conservancy is renovating the playground to improve its accessibility and connection to the park's landscape. Please visit the Central Park Conservancyfor more information.
As of April 27, Central Park's Bow Bridge is closed to the public for structural work and a fresh coat of paint. The work is expected to last three to four months. Removing the old paint will require wrapping the bridge in a tent-like structure to prevent debris from falling into the water. Along with repainting, the work will include replacing the wooden decking, fixing several beams on the underside of the span, and reinforcing approaches at either end.
