Take in the Fall Foliage in the City’s Beautiful Parks

The beautiful patchwork of fall colors is finally starting to show in the city’s lush public parks. Central Park, it goes without saying, is always a great place to see the beautiful autumn leaves up close and personal. Take a stroll along The Mall, go for a leisurely rowboat ride or cycle though the park’s verdant scenery. Prospect Park in Brooklyn offers a similar (though less-crowded) experience, too. Other great parks to check out this weekend in NYC include Bryant Park, Riverside Park, Inwood Hill Park and many others!
