In honor of Black History Month, the Urban Park Rangers are hosting a series of distanced outdoor events in New York Parks that will explore the city’s Black history. “One walking tour focuses on Seneca Village, which was a neighborhood of predominantly African-American property owners in the pre-Central Park 1800s, while another discusses the sanctuary that the area provided for people escaping slavery via the Underground Railroad.” NY Times

Outer borough events hosted by the Urban Park Rangers include The Birthplace of Hip-Hop in Cedar playground in The Bronx. Learn Brooklyn Bridge’s link to the freedom network in Brooklyn and the Underground Railroad.

Events are limited attendance and socially distanced, all guests must wear masks.
