A Toast To Fort Tryon Park: Benefit Wine Tasting Soiree

Linden Terrace – Fort Tryon Park

Thursday, July 14, 2011

6:30 p.m.–9:30 p.m.

The annual A Toast to Fort Tryon Park wine tasting soiree is this Thursday. I went last year and had a truly awesome time. It is not everyday that one can imbibe from an impressive selection of wines, courtesy of Cabrini Wines, while at the same time contributing to an important local cause, helping to maintain the majestic Fort Tryon Park in tip top shape. All proceeds support Fort Tryon Park restoration, horticultural supplies, maintenance staff, free programs, special events, and improvements in the park. Restaurants from the Washington Heights Business Improvement District will supply the delectable fare for the festivities. In addition, local Jazz band, the Leonisa Ardizzone Trio, will provide the musical accompaniment for the evening. Great wine, great food and a great cause, what more could you ask for? See you there.

Rub the rust off thy armor, iron thy chain mail, gird thy loins and polish up on ye chivalry because the 26th Annual MEDIEVAL FESTIVAL AT FORT TRYON PARK will be held on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 3rd, from 11:30AM – 6PM!

The annual event is sponsored by the City of New York Parks and Recreation and the Washington Heights and Inwood Development Corporation (a not-for-profit organization).

Admission is free. Expected Attendance: 40,000-65,000 (depending on weather)

The festival is a unique chance to experience the Medieval period in the most authentic setting this side of the Atlantic. The area around the Cloisters Museum in Fort Tryon Park is transformed into a medieval market village where knights in armor, jugglers, jesters, magicians, musicians, storytellers, and puppeteers will perform. A blacksmith, manuscript illuminator, pottery decorator, wood carver and other artisans will demonstrate their crafts. Performers and fairgoers dress in historical costumes. Medieval food is available and craft items will be sold. The afternoon culminates with a jousting event between knights on horseback!

Northern Manhattan Parks Master Plan

Project Description

The Planning and Parklands division, together with the Northern Manhattan Parks Administrator, are preparing a long-term conceptual master plan for the parks north of 155th Street in Manhattan.

The plan will be used to:

  • Guide the next 20 years of capital expenditures and privately funded projects
  • Establish operational and strategic priorities

The plan will address concerns such as:

  • Ecology and sustainability
  • Recreational facilities and programming
  • Community concerns
  • Health and fitness
  • Waterfront design and access
  • Park operation and security
  • Pedestrian and bicycle circulation
  • Park accessibility

This is where you come in. On the website there is this cool interactive map that shows what community members have already told the Parks Dept about the parks in Northern Manhattan. You can click on a park zone and then a section within that zone, to view the community’s concerns, wishes and current initiatives. You can also click the Propose an Action link, and you too can help shape the future of Northern Manhattan parks!
