NYC Parks advises New Yorkers to avoid using parks until Wednesday morning, when we will provide an update on park conditions.

Album Description:

At Winter Jam NYC, East River Park was a true winter wonderland, complete with snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, a snow sculpture contest, an ice wall, and two rock-climbing walls. This year featured the return of the popular 70-foot long sledding flume, a professional snowboarding competition on Red Bull's 90-foot Snowscraper. Participants got cozy with hot drinks in the Warming Hut and free snacks from New York State farmers and producers. Live performances included music by Apollo Run, Jenda Wight and Dujeous, plus trampoline acrobatics from The Skyriders. Later in the afternoon, up-and-coming and Olympic-hopeful snowboarders took to the Snowscraper, the largest structure ever built in a city park for a special event, for the Future of Snowboarding Invitational hosted by Red Bull.

Parks Photographer Daniel Avila captured the day's highlights.
