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.

Saratoga Square Park, the second largest park in historic Bedford-Stuyvesant, takes its name from Saratoga Avenue just to the east, which was itself named in 1835 for the Revolutionary War Battles of Saratoga, New York on September 19 and October 7, 1777. On September 19, 1777, the British army, thanks to crucial help from German mercenary reinforcements and American ammunition shortages, narrowly defeated the American army at Freeman Farm, near the American camp. British General Burgoyne’s victory was short-lived, however, for reinforcements on the American side, a weakening British army, and diminishing British supplies combined to set the stage for American victory.
