For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

This exhibit of clay castings by Susan Stair forms portraits in trees used by the Lenape Indians for food and medicine. Conference House Park is home to the largest burial site of the pre-Columbian Lenape tribe in the five boroughs of New York City.

Susan Stair worked with John Kilcullen, Director of Conference House Park and certified arborist, in choosing the trees that were important to the Lenape. A sculptor who fixes her actions in the material, Stair captures the spirit of living trees as she reveals species, age and endurance. Viewers are encouraged to touch her work in the way one would meet a tree.

Lenape Landscape: Trees as Tonic opens on Friday, November 25, 2016 and runs through Sunday, January 29, 2017 in the Lenape Gallery at Conference House Park Visitor Center. The gallery is open on Mondays through Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free. The gallery is closed on holidays.

Opening Reception
An opening reception will be held on November 25, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Viewers will be encouraged to partake in a walk using a trail map identifying the trees included in the exhibit.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water.

Exercising with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestow health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

This exhibit of clay castings by Susan Stair forms portraits in trees used by the Lenape Indians for food and medicine. Conference House Park is home to the largest burial site of the pre-Columbian Lenape tribe in the five boroughs of New York City.

Susan Stair worked with John Kilcullen, Director of Conference House Park and certified arborist, in choosing the trees that were important to the Lenape. A sculptor who fixes her actions in the material, Stair captures the spirit of living trees as she reveals species, age and endurance. Viewers are encouraged to touch her work in the way one would meet a tree.

Lenape Landscape: Trees as Tonic opens on Friday, November 25, 2016 and runs through Sunday, January 29, 2017 in the Lenape Gallery at Conference House Park Visitor Center. The gallery is open on Mondays through Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free. The gallery is closed on holidays.

Opening Reception
An opening reception will be held on November 25, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Viewers will be encouraged to partake in a walk using a trail map identifying the trees included in the exhibit.

In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City—a place where history is made, not merely recorded.

As a historic house museum run by NYC Parks, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York. The installation consists of previously and newly acquired works, all from the original Gracie Mansion period, which have been curated to create a more historically accurate picture of life in New York City during the time of Gracie Mansion’s construction.

To RSVP for tour, please visit on.nyc.gov/gracietour.

Currently, Gracie Mansion is not offering group tours. If you are part of a private organization that would like to tour the house, please email your request, including the size of group, your name and the purpose of a tour, to gracieinfo@cityhall.nyc.gov and we will work to add you to one of the currently scheduled tours.

The installation consists of previously and newly acquired works, all from the original Gracie Mansion period, which have been curated to create a more historically accurate picture of life in New York City during the time of Gracie Mansion’s construction.

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions. Saturday morning walks begin at 8:30 a.m.

<![CDATA[Arts, Culture & Fun: Lenape Landscape: Trees as Tonic by Artist Susan Stair]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2017/01/27/arts-culture-fun-lenape-landscape-trees-as-tonic-by-artist-susan-stair http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2017/01/27/arts-culture-fun-lenape-landscape-trees-as-tonic-by-artist-susan-stair Date: January 27, 2017

This exhibit of clay castings by Susan Stair forms portraits in trees used by the Lenape Indians for food and medicine. Conference House Park is home to the largest burial site of the pre-Columbian Lenape tribe in the five boroughs of New York City.

Susan Stair worked with John Kilcullen, Director of Conference House Park and certified arborist, in choosing the trees that were important to the Lenape. A sculptor who fixes her actions in the material, Stair captures the spirit of living trees as she reveals species, age and endurance. Viewers are encouraged to touch her work in the way one would meet a tree.

Lenape Landscape: Trees as Tonic opens on Friday, November 25, 2016 and runs through Sunday, January 29, 2017 in the Lenape Gallery at Conference House Park Visitor Center. The gallery is open on Mondays through Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free. The gallery is closed on holidays.

Opening Reception
An opening reception will be held on November 25, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Viewers will be encouraged to partake in a walk using a trail map identifying the trees included in the exhibit.
