This secluded architectural gem, sorely in need of renovation, was discovered by NYRP Founder Bette Midler as she and her friends undertook their clean-up and restoration of Fort Tryon Park in 1995. In 2001, NYRP was able to assume management of the establishment – formerly operated as a New York City Parks concession – and within a few short years, transformed the New Leaf into an acclaimed fine-dining destination, affording a revenue stream to support NYRP's mission of creating a cleaner, greener New York City.
***As of December 29, 2014, the New Leaf building is TEMPORARILY CLOSED for needed repairs. When re-opened in spring 2015, it will be managed by COFFEED CO.
