One to One:  Veronica White, New York City Parks & Recreation Commissioner
Many will agree that Veronica White, NYC Parks and Recreation Commissioner, has the best job - all those flowers, trees, beaches, parks to think about. Land to develop; parks and lakes to maintain; threatened beaches and boardwalks to shore up and rebuild; golf courses to tend. Not so easy - but still, a great job. (Taped: 03/06/13) Journalist Sheryl McCarthy talks with newsmakers about their sources of inspiration. She has private conversations about public affairs issues with the people who report on them and those who ARE the story. The subjects range from global warming issues to domestic ones.

We first start at the European Style oasis in the middle of midtwown Manhattan, Bryant Park. After that, we walk south to Madison Square Park, the home of the original Shake Shack.After marveling at the Flatiron building, we head south on Broadway to Union Square, a hub of activity anytime day or night. The next stop is my favorite of our stops, Washington Square Park. This small but extremely popular destination is home to some amazing live music and art during the warmer winter months. Our last stop is at Battery Park, on the southern-most tip of Manhattan. Very popular with tourists because of it's view of the Statue of Liberty and proximity to Wall St, it is also where you catch the ferry to head out to Liberty and Ellis Islands. After a sudden but brief rain storm, we finish up by taking a look at the Seaglass Carousel.

Accessibility in NYC Parks
A11yNYC May 2 2017 - Accessibility in NYC Parks - Christopher Noel https://www.meetup.com/A11yNYC/events/238801342/ Transcript: http://isoc-ny.org/a11ynyc/a11ynyc_may2017.txt Good design can and should be accessible to people of all ages and abilities. Often landscape architects can design projects that appeal to a wider range of people using Universal Design concepts. Universal Design refers to broad-spectrum ideas meant to produce buildings, products and environments that are inherently accessible to older people, people without disabilities, and people with disabilities. In this presentation, it will be shown how NYC Parks accomplishes this across many levels of accessibility. Presenter: Christopher Noel is the ADA Accessibility Coordinator for New York City Parks and Recreation. In this role, he ensures that facilities, programs and services are accessible to people of all abilities. He is also responsible for providing technical assistance to the design staff and general public, and works closely to oversee the implementation and expansion of existing adaptive sports programs such as goalball for individuals with vision loss, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair football and wheelchair softball for persons with physical disabilities, adaptive sports carnivals for children with developmental disabilities/autism, a bi-annual Paralympic Track and Field Open for schoolchildren and indoor/outdoor adaptive swim classes designated for adults and seniors with disabilities. As NYC Parks is committed to providing inclusivity and accessibility at all park facilities throughout the city, Christopher ensures there are participation and recreational opportunities for many New Yorkers for years to come. ABOUT ACCESSIBILITY NYC New York City is home to virtually every type of person and every type of company on earth. Our group exists to advance accessibility and inclusive design. Our goal is to bring together NYC's accessibility community to share ideas, best practices, and our experiences. If you're interested in accessibility and inclusive design then we want you in this group. We meet monthly, our previous presentations are archived on this YouTube channel - https://youtube.com/a11ynyc Follow us on Twitter @A11YNYC https://twitter.com/a11ynyc

New York City Parks and Recreation 2017 Brooklyn Rec Holiday Card Project 1
This festive video Christmas card from Brooklyn Rec will put a little cheer in your ear! This holiday season, Brooklyn Chief of Recreation Eileen Dalton and Deputy Chief Ronee Mattingly inspired the Brooklyn Rec staff to come together and bring more fun, love, and happiness to their community. The result? An impressive video packed with hot bars, multiple Santas, and authentic Brooklyn cheer! The video was a collaboration amongst many BK rec staffers. It was directed and produced by Sandra Coello (St. Johns' Rec Director), story edited by Preston Coston (Brownsville's Deputy Center Manager), and audio engineered by Bruce Hansley (St. Johns' Media Lab). Here's just a short glimpse into what makes this Brooklyn Christmas greeting so special! Spoiler alert: it involves high tech audio, snowmen, a roller skating Mrs. Claus, and other holiday imagery so hot that snow doesn't stand a chance! That's enough holiday cheer to spread around all five boroughs! The video is dedicated to Kenneth William Higgins, AKA Kenny, who worked seasonally for St. John’s Recreation for three years and was known for his cheerful disposition and love of singing.

Time Lapse of a Project For The NYC Parks Department
15 hours of work showing in time lapse. We unload six containers that were 22,000 lbs each from a trailer and set them on top of concrete posts. The lifting eyes were supposed to be on the top of the units and to our surprise, there were no lifting eyes, so we had to use or rigging knowledge to develop a plan to move the containers in place. There was a 1" clearance between each unit, so we had to get the rigging equipment we used out from in between the pieces once they were set.

⁴ᴷ⁶⁰ Walking NYC : Sakura Park, Morningside Heights, Manhattan
Google Maps Location: https://goo.gl/maps/31asWKRFDTq A quick walk through Sakura Park in Morningside Heights, Manhattan. It is located between Riverside Church and International House, not too far from Columbia University. From Wikipedia: "Sakura Park is a public park located toward the northern end of the Morningside Heights neighborhood in Manhattan, New York City, between Riverside Drive and Claremont Avenue, north of West 122nd Street. Sandwiched between Riverside Church on the south, the Manhattan School of Music on the east, Grant's Tomb on the west, and International House on its northern side, it is a small, but historic, piece of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation's park system. The park was originally called Claremont Park after the avenue on its east side, but renamed in 1912 after the Committee of Japanese Residents of New York donated 2,500 cherry blossom trees to the city. The land, originally owned by John D. Rockefeller and purchased by the City of New York for use as an extension of Riverside Park, was landscaped with financial support from Rockefeller, over a two-year period starting in 1932. Directly to the east is Claremont Avenue, which is dramatically lower in elevation, and resulted in a buttressed retaining wall being built during the period that extends the length of the park. In 1960, another gift was given to the park, this time by the City of Tokyo in the form of a tōrō, when New York became her sister city. Former Crown Prince and current Emperor of Japan, Akihito, was in attendance during the official dedication on October 10 of that year. Crown Prince Akihito would later rededicate the tōrō with his princess in 1987. The park boasts a bronze statue of General Daniel Adams Butterfield by Gutzon Borglum, who is said to have been so annoyed by the many changes to the sculpture demanded by the committee that commissioned it that he signed it on the top of the general's head, claiming that this was the only aspect that the committee had not required him to change. The statue is oriented such that it faces Grant's Tomb across Riverside Drive and thus it appears Butterfield is looking at the tomb of his fellow Civil War general and the president in whose cabinet he served as the Assistant Treasurer of the United States. The landscaping is dominated by two walks lined with mature linden trees, the branches meet overhead forming a leafy arcade. Between the two walks is a lawn, headed by a gazebo and planted with cherry trees. When the cherry trees bloom, people of Japanese ancestry come to celebrate Hanami and spread picnic blankets under the trees. The cherry bloom is preceded in spring by bulbs, beginning with snowdrops and continuing through tulips."
