Heavy ice and snow can cause hazardous conditions in parks, including falling branches and treacherous frozen park paths. NYC Parks advises New Yorkers to avoid using parks until Wednesday morning, when we will provide an update on park conditions.

Harvard Yard is situated on the lowest level of Skyline Park in the New Brighton section of Staten Island. On May 28, 1938, the State granted the property to the City for joint recreational and educational purposes. It is a grassy lot, or “yard,” defined by a low border fence, and furnished with wooden picnic tables and sandpits with stakes for horseshoe tossing. Bounded by Harvard Avenue, its name is a reference to the original “Harvard Yard,” the main campus of the venerable Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
