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.

Translated from the Arabic, “Umma” means something close to “community.” Conceptually the word refers to a group formed around a common element; in social terms it could be applied to a place-based community as well as to one held together by religious beliefs. The Umma Group, a Central Brooklyn community group, has formed around the Flatbush neighborhood in Brooklyn.
