Hard concrete, towering buildings, more cars, trucks, and buses in a single city block than most small town’s Wal-Mart parking lots. Yes, you’re in NYC.
Thankfully, there are trees. In fact, there are millions of trees!
Trees line the streets, bedazzle the parks, and are even up on rooftops. There are thousands of parks, outdoor recreational facilities, gardens, ponds, lakes, and rivers that allow you to get out and experience nature. And you can find them in many neighborhoods throughout the five boroughs.
We all know that being outside among the trees, plants, insects, birds, and animals is simply wonderful. It makes us feel less stressed, more creative, healthier, happier, and alive!
So to make sure you have plenty of opportunities to feel alive, join us on an adventure through ten of the greenest neighborhoods NYC has to offer.
