Named after the social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer and statesman, the Park is New York City’s only African-American cemetery. The Park is also the final resting place for notable citizens such as Negro league baseball player Elias “Country” Brown, tap dancer Jimmy Mordecai and trumpet player Tommy Ladnier. Although Frederick Douglass himself is buried in Mount Hope Cemetery, Rochester, a plaque commemorates his accomplishments in the Park.

Back in 2012, Hurricane Sandy roared up Raritan Bay and into Lower New York Bay just in time to catch high tide. Large parts of Oakwood Beach experienced significant damage, providing a reminder of the power of Mother Nature. If you live in the 10306 zip code, you’ll have to contend with a variety of weather conditions and sometimes significant temperature fluctuations.
Winter can reach low temperatures of 26℉, and it’s not unusual to have 25 inches of snow over the course of a winter. When considering a self-storage unit, it’s worth investing in a climate-controlled solution to protect your valuable possessions from weather-related damage.
Meanwhile, living right on the water has advantages, especially for fun in the sun. During July and August, temperatures can hit the high 80s. Boats, kayaks, patio furniture and champion sandcastle-building equipment can take up a great deal of room, so a self-storage solution can be a great option to open up space in your garage during the off-season.
Did you know that a self-storage unit can help you build your small or medium business? Whether you need space for supplies, equipment, inventory, vehicles or even to create a workspace, a self-storage unit can provide an economical alternative to sky-high commercial rents.
