This is a GINORMOUS plot of land undeveloped in east Midtown. That building jutting out to the right is a U.N. Building.
I don't know the story behind this place but it's nice to see all those weeds and wildflowers on one big piece of land.
Something you don't really expect to see in Manhattan.
I myself love weeds and wildflowers. They are always in the constant battle of taking back their land.
They'll come out of little cracks of concrete and if they can they will break the concrete.
Weedy trees like the Tree of Heaven (Ailanthus altissima) are taking back the ghettos and city streets one sidewalk crack at a time.

About Me

My photo
In search of myself, I flew across the country from New Jersey to Los Angeles. The universe brought me to the gates of an Ashram on top of a mountain. The mother center of Self Realization Fellowship in Mount Washington, CA. One week later I am employed as a tree pruner and gardener at the mother center. The path to finding oneself is a peculiar one. This is a record of my spiritual observations through nature and life while employed as an Ashram Gardener.
