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.

This park is named for Seamen First Class Radioman Joseph Manna (1924-1942) who served and died on the United States Navy destroyer USS Duncan, during World War II. An immigrant from Licignano, Italy, a suburb of Naples, Manna came to the US with his mother Letizia and brothers Nick and Tony. After graduating from Port Richmond High School, Manna studied radio technology at City College but volunteered for the war at age 17.
