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. NYC Parks advises New Yorkers to avoid using parks until Wednesday morning, when we will provide an update on park conditions.

A British term, “mews” originally referred to stables built around a small street, and then to apartments around a small street which had been converted from such stables. Today it denotes a small residential row of houses, and this park was named Long Island Mews for its proximity to such a neighborhood and the Long Island Railroad (LIRR).
