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.

John D’Emic Sr. (1896-1972) was a South Brooklyn native. He was born the youngest of seven boys to poor Italian immigrants, and began working at the age of 12; first as a clam-opener, then as a plumber, a trolley motorman, a pharmacist, and a truckdriver. After serving with distinction in France during World War I, D’Emic returned to Brooklyn to settle down with his wife Irene and their five children. In 1937, D’Emic opened a used automobile business on the corner of 32nd Street and 4th Avenue that became a borough institution.
