Fall foliage highlights

It's Thanksgiving week, which means we're officially past peak fall foliage here in NYC. As always, the trees surprise us with the intensity of their colorful displays.

On Governors Island, one side of the road has already transitioned to winter as the other side lets us enjoy the autumn colors just a little while longer.


Green-Wood Cemetery is always spectacular, especially in the late afternoon sun.





Tompkins Square Park always puts on a beautiful Fall show.


Woodlawn Cemetery was gorgeous this season, even on an overcast day.








The blazing oranges and reds of the Japanese Maples seemed unreal. The colors in these photos are not enhanced and they were even more dazzling in person.




This is the oldest tree in Woodlawn, a White Oak that predates the cemetery. On this day, its leaves were transitioning from green to yellow to orange to brown...to think this tree is (possibly) older than this country is pretty amazing.
