One of New York’s Top Spots to See Fall Foliage

Some of the best places to see fall foliage is right here in New York City. Explore the Thain Family Forest, the largest remaining tract of old-growth forest in NYC. Become a citizen scientist by helping record and observe native flora, and learn about NYBG’s work in conservation and preservation. Immerse yourself in magnificent fall color, enjoy Shakespeare performances, take a scenic canoe trip down the Bronx River, watch a birds of prey demonstration, or take a hike on the trails with a guide.
