Best Sledding Hills in New York City
As I write this, the snow is still falling and there's already an inch or so on the ground. So I'm hoping we're all going to wake up with enough white stuff for sledding, snowmen and maybe even urban cross-country skiing.
Many of my favorite memories from growing up in NYC involve snow days. The outdoor parking lot on my corner would plow all the snow into one corner, making our own private sledding hill. We would use garbage can lids or pieces of cardboard to sled down this very short, but very steep hill. We also liked to tunnel in between the parked cars to create forts.
Ah, but times have changed. My street urchin days are over and now we use real sleds and real hills to go sledding. Here are some of the best places to go sledding in New York City, as recommended by my family and our readers. Feel free to add your favorites in the comments.
