Happy ! We love all parks and open spaces but if we're being honest we're especially biased toward NYC parks and open spaces in all their beautiful, chaotic, vibrant, diverse glory! Celebrate National NY Day by taking a trip to a local NYC park or open space!

Adorn Me, the 8′ x 15′ concrete & steel sculpture of a trio of regal, large-scale African heads, by Brooklyn-based artist tackles heritage, colonialism, & gentrification. Visit the sculpture (for free) at the corner of Myrtle Avenue & Washington Park.
