The Fort Tryon Park Trust and NYC Parks are launching “Wonderful Wednesdays” which take place on the first Wednesday of each summer month (7/7, 8/4, 9/1). The park’s roads will close to cars from 6 – 11 p.m. on these three nights! Pack a picnic, your blanket, sidewalk chalk, and tricycle or bicycle to spend a car-free sunset in the park.
