Ranger Tours at Inwood Hill Park
Urban Park Ranger Tours are being offered at Inwood Hill Park every Wed,
Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sun at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm. Tours leave from the Indian
Hill Playground on Wed, Thurs and Fri, and from the Inwood Nature Center on
Sat and Sun.

I attended a tour this morning with my 5-year-old and my 16-month-old, along
two 6-year-olds and a couple of 4-year-olds, and we all had a great time. We
were accompanied by a year-round Urban Park Ranger and 3 very enthusiastic
Summer Rangers (college students who delight in sharing their knowledge of
the park). We examined the park's plant and animal life, learned a bit of
Native American history, and explored the Lenape Indian shelters. We also
visited the Nature Center, where we viewed the park's baby eagles on the
eaglet-cam and watched Spike, the resident box turtle, eat his lunch.

If your child is interested in nature, I'd encourage you to take advantage
of this opportunity. Inwood Hill Park is incredibly beautiful and easily
accessible by subway.


For more information about these events, call 212-304-2365. You can also
visit the NYC Dept of Parks and Recreation Website at www.nycgovparks.org/.

After a closure of two years, the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum grounds will be re-opening to the community for Sneak Peak Sundays in July. Visitors will be able to enjoy the roughly ? acre park, view some of the exterior restoration work still in progress and see the recently restored Hessian Hut.




SAVE THE DATE!
Additional hours for the grounds will be added in August and the popular Back Porch Concert Series will also return along with other programming. Stay tuned for the announcement of the grand re-opening event and news on when the farmhouse itself will re-open.

Thursday, August 11th, 6:30pm – The Brazilian Jazz of Karl Spicer
Thursday, September 8th, 6:30 pm – The Honky Tonk with Attitude of local favorite Orville Davis

Our summer re-opening is made possible with support from the Medical Center Neighborhood Fund.

The Dyckman Farmhouse
The Dyckman Farmhouse Museum is a visual treat for everyone who looks up and sees it perched above Broadway at 204th Street. The Dutch colonial style farmhouse was built by William Dyckman c. 1784, immediately following the Revolutionary War. The farmhouse remained in the Dyckman family until the mid 19th century. In 1915, two Dyckman descendents purchased the house, restored and re-furnished the rooms, and gave it to the City of New York as a museum.
Today, nestled in a small park, the farmhouse is an extraordinary reminder of early Manhattan and an important part of its diverse Inwood neighborhood. The Dyckman Farmhouse Museum is a property of the City of New York/Parks & Recreation, a member of the Historic House Trust of New York City and is operated with the cooperation of the two organizations. The Dyckman Farmhouse Museum is a New York City Landmark, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a National Historic Landmark.

Dyckman Farmhouse Museum 4881 Broadway at 204th Street 212.304.9422 www.dyckmanfarmhouse.org
