With New York State’s announcement of NYC moving into Phase 3 outdoor recreation is classified as a Lower Risk Recreation since it can be performed at a physical distance.  With our community’s health in mind, we have worked hard to put protocols + procedures into place. Please take the time to read through the full list of procedures here.
