Social distancing circles have arrived in Harlem's Riverbank State Park

Updated: Jan 10

A series of eye-catching white circles first turned up in Brooklyn's Domino Park earlier this month, instantly the subject of countless social media posts.

Now the same shapes–a neat grid of rings painted six feet apart–have made their way to Riverbank State Park in Harlem.

Meant to help people practice social distancing while using the park, the 35 circles take up half of the playing field inside the running track.

They appeared right in time for Memorial Day weekend.

On a recent afternoon, visitors were using them to exercise–or just soak up the sun–while maintaining a safe distance.
