In a highly unusual move the Parks Department issued a statement this evening advising the public to avoid parks on Thursday night after a man was killed in Central Park by a large tree branch. No word yet on whether the branch was dead, dying or diseased and if its condition was a factor in the fatality.

Parks Department Advises New Yorkers To Avoid Parks This Evening

Earlier today a man died after being hit by a falling tree branch in Central Park. There are several confirmed reports of other trees that have fallen in Central Park and around the city in parks and on streets. The breaking of the branch and the other fallen trees were likely caused by the accumulation of wet, unusually heavy snow. For this reason, we are advising people to avoid parks if possible this evening and to use caution near street trees. People can report fallen trees by calling 311.
