Know Before You Go

ParkNorth Brother Island

Access to North Brother Island is restricted because of safety concerns and its present capacity as a water bird nesting habitat. Through approximately the fall of 2016, NYC Parks will not be allowing access to the island. During that time, Parks will be managing a natural resources project, including securing several hazardous conditions, conducting extensive storm debris cleanup, and removing a number of hazardous leaning trees in addition to restoring harbor heron habitat. For this reason, Parks is unable to accommodate requests to visit North Brother Island at this time.
