Green-Wood botanical walk
27 September 2014, 12.30pm - 3.00pm
As I wrote in
66 Square Feet - A Delicious Life
some of the city's most beautiful trees grow in Green-Wood. I have sat under them in the hottest months and felt cool, and have rustled through the leaf litter in fall, sharing the grounds with no one but a stately ground hog, who is king of Green-Wood.
Join me on a quiet exploration of one of the most peaceful parts of the city. Also the most hilly. Rare, in New York City.
After rain, the lawns are home to mushrooms and sometimes one finds maitake growing on the roots of the mostly stately trees.
It will be a walk with eyes trained to what grows in lawns and on trees. We may see little. We may see a lot. But it will be beautiful.
We meet on the sidewalk at Green-Wood's main entrance on 5th Avenue and 25th Street. Closest subway is the R at 25th Street. More details will be emailed before we walk.
Bring a sandwich and drink, and a sense of adventure.
