Grove of American Elms on Central Park Mall

The grove of American elms on Central Park Mall, located just north of the intersection of the east and north drives, at about 66th street, is likely one of the largest groves of its kind. They are noted for their regularly-spaced trunks, which resemble the columns in a cathedral, and for their twisting branches.
