Winter Scenes in Fort Tryon Park

Fort Tryon Park is one of Manhattan's most beautiful parks. It is a densely forested high ground at the northern tip of Manhattan and it was named after Sir William Tryon, the last British governor of colonial New York. The park was built by Frederick Law Olmsted Jr., son of the architect of Central Park, in 1935, and gifted to the city of New York by John D. Rockefeller. The images of the park were made during last Saturday's snowfall.
