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.

Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

This student workshop introduces kids to “Bronx Heroes Jr.”, an activity book in the making in collaboration with Community Board 7. This workshop will include games, a live reading of Bronx Heroes Jr., a PSA to students and a coloring pages activity.

This event is a part of Living in Sequence, a comic book exhibition celebrating Poe Park's place in comic history. Bob Kane, Bill Finger and Jerry Robinson once created Batman, Robin and the Joker while sitting on a park bench in Poe Park. Living in Sequence will take you on a journey from the golden age of comics through today, demonstrating how the American art form of comics still thrives in the Bronx.
