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.

Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Ice-age glaciers, Native Americans, Dutch traders, British Redcoats, and the Underground Railroad have all left their mark on New York City. Their stories can be found in the names of our streets, our architecture, and our parks. 

Urban Park Rangers specialize in interpretation of historic turning points, both natural and man-made, in our city’s long history. 

Historic New York programs highlight the history of selected neighborhoods or parks.  All programs are historic walking tours unless otherwise noted.  

Certain popular programs have limited space and may require registration.
