FORT GREENE — Fort Greene Park turned into a magical winter wonderland during this weekend’s blizzard, inspiring dance parties, staircase snowboarding and pizza-shaped sleds.

The park’s four main hills and giant triple staircase morphed into sweet slopes for residents after they were covered in more than two feet of snow. 

Here are your photos from #Blizzard2016 at Fort Greene Park:

Restaurant and bar closings didn't stop this lively group of Fort Greene residents from busting a move during the blizzard.
