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.

Major General John Sedgwick (1813-1864) was one of the most revered commanders of the Union Army during the Civil War. A Connecticut native and the son of a Revolutionary War general, Sedgwick graduated from West Point in 1837. At the outbreak of the Civil War, Sedgwick was a major with 24 years of experience, having fought extensively in the Seminole (1835-42) and Mexican (1846-48) Wars.
