A guide to barbecuing uptown on the Fourth of July

If sidewalk barbecues aren’t your thing and you prefer picnic benches and grass for your outdoor gatherings then you are in luck. Harlem and Washington Heights happen to have the most parks in Manhattan where grilling is allowed.  We’ve provided a comprehensive list of upper Manhattan parks where you are authorized to cook out this weekend. You should be aware that not all areas of the parks are designated for barbecues and that proper disposal of your trash and coals are required. Many people bring their own garbage bags just in case the trash receptacles provided by the parks department overflow. Coals (hot or cold) should only be dumped into the designated metal bins (see below).

Have a safe holiday! We’ll see you back here on Monday.
