MillionTreesNYC is hosting a series of spring lecture series events in partnership with photographer Benjamin Swett!

Join us for a presentation by U.S. Forest Service scientist David Nowak, Valuing New York City's Changing Urban Forest.

The City of New York Parks & Recreation is pleased to announce the photography exhibition New York City of Trees by Benjamin Swett. Twenty-eight color portraits of trees around the five boroughs take the viewer up close to some of the extraordinary large plants that grow along the streets and in the parks, cemeteries, gardens, and backyards of the city. On view in the Arsenal Gallery from March 6 through April 26 (Arbor Day and Frederick Law Olmsted’s birthday), the images have been selected from Swett’s forthcoming book New York City of Trees, to be released by the Quantuck Lane Press on March 6.

Space is LIMITED. Please RSVP for this event by contacting:  artandantiquities@parks.nyc.gov

As of April 27, Central Park's Bow Bridge is closed to the public for structural work and a fresh coat of paint. The work is expected to last three to four months. Removing the old paint will require wrapping the bridge in a tent-like structure to prevent debris from falling into the water. Along with repainting, the work will include replacing the wooden decking, fixing several beams on the underside of the span, and reinforcing approaches at either end.
Anticipated Completion: Summer 2015
