The Leaves Change in NYC too

We do, of course, also have trees right here in the great city of New York, and they too turn color this time of year. In addition to obvious peeping spots like Central Park, the North Woods, the Harlem Meer, and the Great Hill are all extremely pretty and usually under-crowded. You can also check out the New York Botanical Gardens or Fort Tryon Park, home of Cloisters and pretty amazing views of the Hudson.
