A Forest in the City

A very quick post - a mini-post, if you will.

The highlight of my week was chaperoning Holden's first grade class field trip to the New York Botanical Garden

It is a national landmark in the Bronx and covers more than 250 acres. 


Luckily, the mother of a boy in our class works as a school guide there and so she was able to lead our tour and take us to parts of the park that aren't normally available to other groups. 


The forest section of the park is more than 50 acres and has some trees believed to be over 400 years old.  It was a real forest before Europeans came through and set up a city around it. 

I bet you never knew that New York City could look like this.
