Adopt a Chair

Our memorable ratchet strap chairs are back by popular demand, offering visitors a place to lean back and relax by the waterfront. Now you can adopt your own, whether in your name or in honor of a loved one, and we will place a personalized plaque on your chair for the 2017 season.

There are multiple giving levels that would allow you to Adopt-A-Chair this season, and every gift is 100% tax deductible. Corporations or businesses can Adopt-A-Chair for $500, and the individual rate is $250 (local Queens residents receive a 20% discount). Donations go directly toward supporting the Park’s programs, all of which are completely FREE and open to the public.
