Man sues New York park for not putting up signs warning people not to climb rocks
Thirty-two-year-old personal trainer Jonathan Stock recently filed a personal injury lawsuit against both New York City and the park managers of the Hudson River Park in Manhattan, New York City in relation to an injury he sustained when climbing on a rock sculpture. In the claim, he states that they failed to warn people not to climb on a particular rock in the park, causing him to sustain an injury.
The lawsuit was first mentioned publicly in an article by the New York Post, which was published on Sunday, March 30. In the article Stock recounted the details of climbing the steep, 8 to 10-foot tall rock that was part of a cultural stone arrangement in June 2013.
