High Rock Park

If you click over to the Prospect Park Litter Mob blog, you'll find a beautiful slideshow of our visit to High Rock Park. The fall colours were stunning and very heavy on the yellows. I love the beech forest - it has become one of my favourite spots in New York City.

And here is the Frenchman's take on High Rock Park.

I need help with the id for this small tree or shrub above. It must be hawthorn, Crataegus, sp - but what? At first the leaves and form struck me as a dead ringer for serviceberry (Amelanchier sp.) and I was confused - those berries were eaten last June. The tree had multiple stems, smooth bark and was rounded, about 10 feet high and across.
