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.

This text is part of Parks’ Historical Signs Project and can be found posted within the park.

This triangle is named for New York City Mayor John V. Lindsay (1921-2000, Mayor 1965-1973).

Lindsay, a twin in a family of five children, was born in Manhattan on November 24, 1921. Living in homes along Park Avenue and in Long Island, he attended the Buckley School for Boys in New York, the St. Paul Preparatory School in New Hampshire, and Yale University. Accelerating his undergraduate coursework, Lindsay attained a degree in History, graduating early to enlist in the U.S. Navy during World War II (1939-1945). A decorated lieutenant, he returned to Yale in 1946 to earn his law degree, passing the Bar in 1948. The following year, Lindsay married Mary Anne Harrison, and the two settled in Stuyvesant Town. While practicing law, Lindsay was particularly concerned with civil liberties and political ethics.
