Sara D. Roosevelt Park: Stand of sycamores

This 7.85 acre New York City park is lined and filled with large sycamores. The views from the sidewalk (above) and from the Whole Foods cafe on Chrystie Street are refreshing. From the NYC Parks Department website:

A shimmering stretch of green amidst the sea of concrete, asphalt, and tightly-packed buildings, Sara D. Roosevelt Park provides a refreshing respite for residents and visitors of Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

  1. I love a grove of sycamores in the winter. It is like walking among the bones of a giant.

  2. We discovered this unusual park last time in NYC. In late fall, at twilight, the old trees are like sentinels. Thank you for the lovely pictures.
