Morningside Park

Yesterday morning, Megan and I did a bit of naturalizng in Morningside Park, just northwest of Central Park in Manhattan. Suprisingly the pond there was full of red-eared sliders, which I'm sure were at one time pets that have been dumped. We saw about fifty turtles. This one was particularly brave, basking about five feet from the sidewalk

There were even dragonflies here, right in the middle of the city. We saw dozens of green darners, possibly a wandering glider, and this familiar bluet.

  1. Tom. Morningside was my favorite park when I lived in Manhattan. Thank you for posting about your experiences there. It still holds a really special place in my heart.
