Tragic incident in the Park - Oct 31

October 31

There was a horrible incident at around 3pm in the Park. A vehicle turned south on the bikeway and struck bicyclists from Houston St. all the way down to Stuyvesant High School. There are many injuries and I am heartbroken to say, fatalities. 

The park is now a crime scene in this area and I ask that everyone please stay away and allow the police to do their work. 

Our hearts go out to all the victims and their families.

The Park will re-open at the completion of the police investigation. I would like to thank everyone for their understanding.
