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! This event is held underneath the majestic elms on the Stan Michels Promenade, alongside the beautiful Heather Garden and overlooking the Hudson River. The promenade was named in his honor shortly before he passed away on August 1, 2008.
Stan Michels represented Northern Manhattan in the City Council for 24 years from 1978 through 2001. 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.
Event presented by the Fort Tryon Park Trust. Stayed tuned for RSVP details.
In the event of rain, the event will be canceled.
