NYC PARKS CAMPING

Attraction

Free overnight camping in NYC parks is allowed - but only on select nights, and only if you win the lottery.

The lottery in question is operated by the Urban Park Rangers and it allows families to bring a tent and other useful urban camping gear to spend a night in Central Park, Fort Greene Park, Van Cortlandt Park, Pelham Bay Park, Marine Park, Alley Pond Park or Wolfe’s Pond Park.

A 24-hour online lottery is held for each camping night with about 30 winning entries per event. The NYC camping and lottery dates for 2011:

Location: Pelham Bay Park, Bronx
Camp night: July 22

COUNCILMAN VACCA

Solution

NYC Councilman Jimmy Vacca is out of the country on a well deserved summer vacation with his wife and his daughter. I was assured that he was not in Bermuda. Someone else we know likes to visit Bermuda.

City Island Images was told that the councilman went on a sea cruise, touring our northern neighbors in Canada. You too could be enjoying one of these cruises from NYC. The Queen Mary 2 and two Princess Cruises ships sail from NYC in 2011 and 2012. The terminal in Brooklyn is large enough to handle these mega-ships.
