Wild Things

When I was a kid, our neighborhood had a patch of wild growth just behind the houses across the street. It served as a little area where snakes and bushes, and even some garbage, flourished and as a piquant reminder of what is gained and lost by building a city. I was reminded of that when I came across the Forgotten NY website. It's an interesting peek into the strange and wonderful things that you can find in the most modern city on Earth, including wilderness areas, a quaint little New England fishing the Bronx!, the original, and now neglected, Hall of Fame of Great Americans, old transit stops and lore and many other fascinating things. Check it out!
