Your Local Leafer HQ

The Thain Family Forest—New York City’s largest remaining tract of old-growth woodland—is your fall foliage headquarters! Leaf locally and explore the Forest’s 50 acres full of vibrant fall color–a front row seat to the best views of the season right at home. These weekends will offer Native American Heritage Month activities, tours, educational demonstrations, and more.
