NYC Parks urges caution during the snow storm predicted for Monday afternoon through Tuesday evening. Heavy ice and snow can cause hazardous conditions in parks, including falling branches and treacherous frozen park paths.

This park honors Alex Lindower (d. 1965) a community activist in the Mill Basin section of Brooklyn. An attorney by profession, Lindower spent much of his time working to make the area a more desirable and livable neighborhood. His efforts are still visible today.

He convinced the City Council to fund stop lights and traffic signals which made the neighborhood’s circular streets safer to cross. He successfully lobbied against the construction of a Sanitation Disposal Unit. Lindower also organized many community groups in the area including the Geritson Beach Veterans Association. He was a member of the Grand Street Boys Association, the Brighton Beach Chamber of Commerce, and the Knights of Pythias. Lindower participated in charity work with the Chronic Disease Hospital and the Beth Jacobs Girls Yeshiva and served as the Executive First Vice-President of the Flatbush Parks Civic Association.
