Join the Fort Tryon Tryon Park Trust, NYC Parks, and the Michels family to celebrate 86 years of Fort Tryon Park and to honor the late New York City Council Member Stan Michels. Enjoy live jazz by local impresario Marjorie Eliot, her son Rudel Drears, and their ensemble!

He was a steadfast advocate for parks, allocating over $50 million for park improvements in Washington Heights, Inwood, and Harlem, including nearly every playground in his district. The promenade was named in his honor shortly before he passed away on August 1, 2008.
