Ice Skating Rink in Bryant Park, New York City
Ice Skating Rink in Bryant Park, New York City Bryant Park's ice skating rink sets itself apart from all others in New York City because it is free! Of course, that only applies if you bring your own skates, but even with the cost of skate rentals it's one of New York City's most affordable ice skating options. Bryant Park is a 9.603-acre (38,860 m2) privately managed public park located in the New York City borough of Manhattan. It is located between Fifth and Sixth Avenues and between 40th and 42nd Streets in Midtown Manhattan. Although technically the Main Branch of the New York Public Library is located within the park, effectively it forms the park's functional eastern boundary, making Sixth Avenue the park's primary entrance. Bryant Park is located entirely over an underground structure that houses the library's archives, which were built in the 1980s when the park was closed to the public and excavated; the new library facilities were built below ground level while the park was restored above it. Even though it is part of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, Bryant Park is managed by the private not-for-profit corporation Bryant Park Corporation.

Central Park Walk, Manhattan Tourist Attraction, New York City, 4K Video
Central Park Walk, Manhattan Tourist Attraction, New York City, 4K Video Central Park is an urban park in Manhattan, New York City. Central Park is the most visited urban park in the United States, with 40 million visitors in 2013, and one of the most filmed locations in the world. The park was established in 1857 on 778 acres (315 ha) of city-owned land. In 1858, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, a landscape architect and an architect, respectively, won a design competition to improve and expand the park with a plan they titled the "Greensward Plan". Construction began the same year and the park's first area was opened to the public in the winter of 1858. Construction continued during the American Civil War farther north, and was expanded to its current size of 843 acres (341 ha) in 1873. Central Park was designated a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior in 1962, which in April 2017 placed it on the tentative list for UNESCO World Heritage sites. The park, managed for decades by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, is currently managed by the Central Park Conservancy under contract with the municipal government in a public-private partnership. The Conservancy is a non-profit organization that contributes 75 percent of Central Park's $65 million annual budget and is responsible for all basic care of the 843-acre park. The City of New York, often called New York City, is the most populous city in the United States. Located at the southern tip of the state of New York, the city is the center of the New York metropolitan area, one of the most populous urban areas in the world. With population of 8,550,405 distributed over a land area of just 305 square miles (790 km2), New York is also the most densely populated major city in the United States. A global power city, New York City exerts a significant impact upon commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, research, technology, education, and entertainment. Home to the headquarters of the United Nations, New York is an important center for international diplomacy and has been described as the cultural and financial capital of the world. Manhattan is often described as the cultural and financial capital of the world and hosts the United Nations Headquarters. Anchored by Wall Street in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan, New York City has been called both the most economically powerful city and the leading financial center of the world.

Washington Square Park - New York City New York
"Washington Square Park is one of the best-known of New York City's 1,900 public parks. At 9.75 acres (39,500 m2), it is a landmark in the Manhattan neighborhood of Greenwich Village, as well as a meeting place and center for cultural activity. It is operated by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. The Park is an open space, dominated by Washington Arch (1892), with a tradition of celebrating nonconformity. The Park's fountain area has long been one of the city's popular spots for residents and tourists. Most of the buildings surrounding the park now belong to New York University, but many have at one time served as homes and studios for artists. Some of the buildings have been built by NYU, others have been converted from their former uses into academic and residential buildings." "Washington Square has long been a hub for politics and culture in New York City. In 1834, New York University decided to use prison labor to dress the stone for its new building, across from the park, as prison labor from Sing Sing was cheaper than hiring local stonemasons. This, the stonecutters of the city said, was taking the bread out of their mouths. They held a rally in Washington Square Park, and then held the first labor march in the city. That turned into a riot, and the 27th New York regiment was called out to quell the stonecutters. The regiment camped in Washington Square for four days and nights until the excitement subsided. New York University continued their use of prison labor. In 1888, Robert Louis Stevenson, visiting the U.S. to seek medical help for his battle with consumption, shared a seat and enjoyed a conversation in the park with Mark Twain. A street entertainer in Washington Square Park In 1912, approximately 20,000 workers (including 5,000 women) marched to the park to commemorate the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, which had killed 146 workers the year before. Many of the women wore fitted tucked-front blouses like those manufactured by the Triangle Shirtwaist Company. This clothing style became the working woman's uniform and a symbol of female independence, reflecting the alliance of labor and suffrage movements. Over 25,000 people marched on the park demanding women's suffrage in 1915. In the years before and after World War I, the park was a center for many American artists, writers, and activists, including the photographer André Kertész, who photographed the square during winter. Later the park was a gathering area for the Beat generation, folk, and Hippie movements in the 1950s and 1960s; in 1958, musician Buddy Holly, a nearby resident of Greenwich Village, spent time in the park both listening to people play and helping guitarists with musical chords. The infamous park scene in the 1995 film Kids takes place at Washington Square Park. The park was featured extensively in the 2007 film I Am Legend. The protagonist, Dr. Robert Neville, played by Will Smith, lived directly across the street from the park. It was used as a major action piece, especially in the last scenes of the film. Chess players in the southwest corner of the park Built-in outdoor chess tables on the southwest corner encourage outdoor playing along with throngs of watchers (in his youth, Stanley Kubrick was a frequent player). These tables were featured in the films Searching for Bobby Fischer (1993) and Fresh (1994). The Washington Square tables form the cornerstone of what is called Manhattan's "chess district," as the area around the park (Thompson Street, between West 3rd Street and Bleecker Street) has a number of chess shops, the oldest being the Village Chess Shop, which was founded in 1972 but closed in November, 2012. On September 27, 2007, Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama held a rally at Washington Square. 20,000 people registered for the event, and the crowds overflowed past security gates set up as a cordon. The New York Times described the rally "as one of the largest campaign events of the year." " http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_Square_Park

The park is operated and maintained by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. Situated in Astoria and adjacent to the Triborough (Robert F. Kennedy) and Hell Gate Bridges, the park contains New York City's oldest and largest swimming pool. The outdoor 54,450-square-foot (5,059 m2) pool, planned by Robert Moses, was used for qualifying events for the 1936 and 1964 Summer Olympics. Other attractions include bocce courts, fourteen tennis courts, two playgrounds, a skatepark, and one track for running. One of the playgrounds, Charybdis Playground, is across the Hell Gate from Scylla Point on Wards Island. The names stem from the dangerous whirlpools in the waters of the Hell Gate. On Independence Day, the Queens Symphony Orchestra plays in Astoria Park during the fireworks show. Upcoming events are posted on the parks department website. The park was formerly the site of a Native American settlement, and is close to where the General Slocum caught fire and sunk in 1904."

NYPD,"The Police Camp", Memories Of The NYC Police Recreation Center.
The New York City Police Department built a resort hotel in the Catskill Mountains in 1921. It was officially known as the Police Recreation Center, but it was more commonly known to families simply as "The Police Camp". For six decades the "police camp," was the site for many festive memories for the families and friends of the officers who came upstate to escape the bustle of the city and to revel in the glory of nature. Many visitors took pleasure in the movie theater, casino, bar, lounge, swimming pool and ballroom onsite. Even a man made lake for swimming and boating. But eventually, as the decades rolled by business declined. The statue at the Camp's entrance of a Policeman with a young boy that now stands in the lobby of 1 Police Plaza (Police Headquarters), was removed from its spot at the entrance to the Police Camp a place that it had held since the 1930's. The model for the child was Fiorello LaGuardia's son Eric LaGuardia. In 1983, the Police Recreation Center sadly closed its doors. The Camp lay abandoned for 8 years. The property was ultimately bought by a Mennonite sect the Bruderhof a Christian religious community who welcome all visitors. I personally have many fond memories of the time I spent with my family at the "Police Camp", and I'm sure there are many other families out there who feel the same way. I'm glad I was finally able to dust off some old pictures and film and with the help of many other resources was able to put this video together.

Protect the Artists in New York City Parks
The NYC Parks department claims that artists "detract from the experience of...park visitors." New Yorkers disagree. The Parks Department has proposed to drive 80% of artists from the Parks, and to limit the remaining 20% to less desirable areas.

Dan Barasch: A park underneath the hustle and bustle of New York City
Dan Barasch and James Ramsey have a crazy plan—to create a park, filled with greenery, underneath New York City. The two are developing the Lowline, an underground greenspace the size of a football field. They're building it in a trolley terminal abandoned in 1948, using technology that harvests sunlight above-ground and directs it down below. It's a park that can thrive, even in winter.

Accessibility in NYC Parks
A11yNYC May 2 2017 - Accessibility in NYC Parks - Christopher Noel https://www.meetup.com/A11yNYC/events/238801342/ Transcript: http://isoc-ny.org/a11ynyc/a11ynyc_may2017.txt Good design can and should be accessible to people of all ages and abilities. Often landscape architects can design projects that appeal to a wider range of people using Universal Design concepts. Universal Design refers to broad-spectrum ideas meant to produce buildings, products and environments that are inherently accessible to older people, people without disabilities, and people with disabilities. In this presentation, it will be shown how NYC Parks accomplishes this across many levels of accessibility. Presenter: Christopher Noel is the ADA Accessibility Coordinator for New York City Parks and Recreation. In this role, he ensures that facilities, programs and services are accessible to people of all abilities. He is also responsible for providing technical assistance to the design staff and general public, and works closely to oversee the implementation and expansion of existing adaptive sports programs such as goalball for individuals with vision loss, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair football and wheelchair softball for persons with physical disabilities, adaptive sports carnivals for children with developmental disabilities/autism, a bi-annual Paralympic Track and Field Open for schoolchildren and indoor/outdoor adaptive swim classes designated for adults and seniors with disabilities. As NYC Parks is committed to providing inclusivity and accessibility at all park facilities throughout the city, Christopher ensures there are participation and recreational opportunities for many New Yorkers for years to come. ABOUT ACCESSIBILITY NYC New York City is home to virtually every type of person and every type of company on earth. Our group exists to advance accessibility and inclusive design. Our goal is to bring together NYC's accessibility community to share ideas, best practices, and our experiences. If you're interested in accessibility and inclusive design then we want you in this group. We meet monthly, our previous presentations are archived on this YouTube channel - https://youtube.com/a11ynyc Follow us on Twitter @A11YNYC https://twitter.com/a11ynyc

Mayor de Blasio Announces Major Sections of Parks to Become Car-Free
Major Sections of Central Park and Prospect Park Will Become Permanently Car-Free, Dedicated Solely to Recreation Changes will make two of NYC’s crown jewel parks safer and healthier, enhance public space and encourage New Yorkers to get active Central Park Drives north of 72nd Street will be permanently car-free starting June 29 Prospect Park West Drive will be permanently car-free starting July 6 Mayor Bill de Blasio today announced permanent improvements to Central Park and Prospect Park that will make the majority of each park car-free, with park drives dedicated solely to recreation for the first time in more than a century. The changes will restore major sections of two of the city’s crown jewel parks to their original vision as recreational paths, making the parks healthier, safer and more accessible to millions of New Yorkers. Central Park’s entire loop drive above 72nd Street will be permanently car-free. Prospect Park’s West Drive between Grand Army Plaza and Park Circle, previously open to motor vehicle traffic for two hours during weekday afternoons, will likewise be permanently reserved solely for recreation. With these changes, more of each park will be car-free than at any time since the first automobiles were introduced to them at the turn of the 20th century. Combined, more than 45 million people visit Central Park and Prospect Park each year. The Department of Transportation conducted extensive traffic analyses of both parks’ loop drives and surrounding streets prior to undertaking these improvements. Neither change is projected to impact travel times or congestion in nearby neighborhoods. In Central Park, this change is consistent with the seasonal car-free summer hours of the past two years, which have proven to have had no adverse impacts. The four Central Park Transverse roads will remain open to motor vehicle traffic. Emergency and parks maintenance vehicles will continue to have access to the loop drives as necessary. To further improve mobility in Manhattan communities adjacent to Central Park, the DOT will extend the Fifth Avenue bus lane north to 110th Street from 7-11 a.m. on weekdays. Fifth Avenue is one of the heaviest travelled bus routes in the City, with over 74,000 local and express bus riders each day. Prospect Park at Bartel-Pritchard Square Thursday, June 18th, 2015

New York City Central Park
Central Park is one of those places that make New York such a great place to live. The huge park is located in the center of Manhattan. The park boasts several lakes, theaters, ice rinks, fountains, tennis courts, baseball fields, many playgrounds and other facilities. It is also home to the Central Park Zoo and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Especially during the weekends, when cars are not allowed into the park, Central Park is a welcome oasis in this hectic city. Copyright(©)Robert Thoomes 2012
