Where the city is distributing free face coverings today
The city has been handing out face masks in NYC parks since Saturday.
This morning (May 4!), you can pick up the five-pack of masks in East River Park — specifically the promenade at Sixth Street from 10 to noon.
Our friends up at the West Side Rag reported on Saturday that the city exhausted the supply of 2,000 packages after 45 minutes from a location in Central Park.
This link has the other NYC locations where the city will offer up the masks.
As of April 17, all New Yorkers are required to wear a mask or face covering when out in public and in situations where a 6-foot distance from others cannot be maintained.
