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.

Rolf Henry Playground honors a local businessman and community organizer, whose tragic murder robbed his community of an open-hearted and energetic soul.

Henry spent his early years in Belmont and Woodbrook, Trinidad. In the 1960s, he moved to New York and entered the printing business, later opening his own printing company on Ocean Avenue. As business thrived, he also opened a restaurant and nightclub near his home on New York Avenue, across the street from this playground. His success was everyone's gain, for much of his income went to charities, and twice each year he hosted meals for the poor.
