In honor of Library Lovers’ Month, the Manhattan Public Library has invited people to say what they love about the library. In addition to the obvious things – the book collection and the helpful staff – I love its trees. Pictured here are Red Bud and White Bud trees by the Poyntz Avenue entrance. I can’t wait to see them in bloom again this spring!
This is a beautiful time to take walks in Manhattan, not just because of the weather, but because of all of the flowering trees: red buds, white buds, pear, crab apple, and so forth. These are some pictures that I took yesterday while walking past the Manhattan Public Library.
