Eruv Border Notes

**If the entrance to a building is in the eruv, then the building is in the eruv.**

The Mount Sinai - Heights Eruv is noted in Purple (left) in the map.

This eruv borders the YU eruv, indicated in blue (right) in the map.

YOU MAY CARRY BETWEEN the two eruvin.

Please visit for the details of the YU eruv.


The Mount Sinai Eruv has recently been expanded northward to include the YM & YWHA. The full map can be seen online. (updated 8/2020)

Areas to be careful of in the Mount Sinai Eruv:

  • The eruv has been extended past Broadway and Bennet to include the area between Nagle Ave and Hillside Ave until Ellwood.
  • On Fort Washington north of 730 Ft Wash (the last building before the A TRAIN) you may walk ONLY on the WEST side of the street (alongside Javits Park). The traffic circle in front of Fort Tryon Park is OUT of the eruv.
  • On Wadsworth, below 182nd Street, the eruv extends ONLY on the WEST (closer to the bridge) side  of the street.
  • You can cross Broadway on both sides of any street between 180th and 193rd, and ONLY on the NORTH SIDE of 179th
  • On 181st Street, the eruv ends at the entrance to 867 W 181st St (between Cabrini and Haven). The rest of the street (going west), is outside the eruv.


  • Fort Tryon Park is NOT IN the eruv.
  • The stairs on Fort Washington that go down to the A train near the entrance to Fort Tryon Park ARE NOT IN the eruv. The park that they lead to is also not in the eruv.

Going to/from the YU Eruv

Parks/Playgrounds in the eruv
