If anyone reading this post is within striking distance of Brooklyn, they should head to Marine Park ASAP. I was just there, and couldn't believe my eyes! There had to be at least 15 large mature hardwood trees that were blown down during the high winds a few weeks ago. Never seen anything like it in all my years. And the best part is that a lot of it has already been bucked by NYC Park Authority! Looks like they're just waiting for the chipper to arrive. In fact, there are some huge piles of wood chips which tells me that they plan to chip the rest of the wood. If I lived closer, I'd be making many hops to Marine Park. If anyone takes my advice, please take pictures and post your score on this forum!!
