Best Parks for Fall Foliage – Brooklyn
Fort Greene Park
Trees to see: Massive London plane trees, oaks, elms, gingkos, osage orange trees
The park is small enough that you can meander through the whole thing. Just don’t forget to climb to its apex and check out the view from the hill.
Most of NYC’s salt marshes have been paved over for development, so it’s a treat to be able to commune with egrets, herons and other birds at Salt Marsh Nature Trail.
This trail is about one mile long, past prairie grass and along the Gerritsen Beach shoreline toward Jamaica Bay.
Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 1
Seek out the small, winding forest-like trails, and photo-perfect skyline views of Lower Manhattan.
Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Especially the Native Floral Garden and the Japanese Hill and Garden.
