Stan Michels Promenade

Join the Fort Tryon Tryon Park Trust, NYC Parks, and the Michels family to honor the late Council Member Stan Michels at the 14th Annual Stan Michels Memorial Jazz Concert. Enjoy live jazz by local impresario Marjorie Eliot, her son Rudel Drears, and their ensemble. The concert will be held at a location in Fort Tryon Park, to be determined by social distancing concerns. In the event of rain, we will host the concert indoors at The Cornerstone Church, 178 Bennett Avenue.

In the event of rain, the concert will be held indoors at Our Saviour’s Atonement/Cornerstone Church: 178 Bennett Avenue.

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 virtually every playground in his district. The promenade was named in his honor shortly before he passed away on August 1, 2008.
