New York City is on pause—but Central Park remains open. New Yorkers still visit the Park in search of mental and physical well-being, and Conservancy staff ensures the Park stays clean and accessible. This is a spring like no other, which photographer Elliot Stern captures in these Park photos from recent weeks. By practicing social distancing, wearing face covers, and being respectful of others, New Yorkers can continue to keep the Park a reliable place to relax.
Protect yourself and others by following these tips for visiting parks and recreational facilities from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Governor Andrew Cuomo has also issued an executive order requiring all people in New York to wear masks or face coverings in public.
It’s clear that every New Yorker has a unique relationship with the Park — especially now. If the Park is making a special difference in your life during this time, share your story with #myCentralPark.
