#FALLFORNYC SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN
The fall fun doesn’t end here – Parks will also be unveiling its #FallForNYC campaign in October, complete with an Instagram competition, fall-themed Spotify playlist, virtual hikes, and so much more.
Parks wants all to enjoy the city’s greenspaces during the fall, and urges everyone to continue following social distancing guidelines – maintain 6 feet of distance from others, wear a face covering, and stay home if feeling sick. Parks also asks New Yorkers to do their part to keep this city’s greenspaces clean for all – throw trash in designated receptacles, or to take out what you bring in.
