This It's My Park season, volunteer with Montefiore Park Neighborhood Association to clean up the park and participate in a public art project led by Urban Soul Alliance.

The public art project asks passersby, park users, and neighbors to respond to and finish the prompt "I need...". The responses will then be placed throughout Montefiore Park and will remain on view until mid-July. This first installation at Montefiore Square will be a representation of 1,000 voices from our community. You do not need to be an artist to do this work, all you need is the belief that, collectively, we can work toward social justice and social transformation.

We hope to see you in the park!

Join the Stewardship Team for an evening of horseshoe crab monitoring! Since 2013, NYC Parks has been monitoring horseshoe crab spawning activity along the restored sandy beach at Coney Island Creek. We'll be walking the beach to count the number of crabs present and tagging them to keep track of how many we've already seen as part of NYC Parks' ongoing effort to monitor their activity. This exciting work contributes to a long-term research study that is helping us to better understand and protect the horseshoe crabs that live in our urban waters. Come and take a closer look at our city’s valuable natural resources! Please come dressed in layers, clothes that can get dirty, and waterproof boots or sneakers, and bring your own water bottle. All volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
