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.

Stephen A. Rudd (1874-1936), a lifelong resident of Brooklyn, is the namesake of this playground, located on Bushwick Avenue between Aberdeen and Granite Streets. From the time of his law school graduation to his death in 1936, Rudd shared his talents with the community that shaped him. An alumnus of Brooklyn Law School and St. Lawrence University, Rudd married his constant companion Elizabeth Lindsay in 1895.
