The Dead Forests of Stuyvesant Town
Folks who live in the Stuyvesant Town Oval addresses at the north-eastern part of the Oval have the pleasure of several dead forests surrounding them.

And below is Stuy Town 15 Oval. This looked nice in late summer of last year, when newly put in, but as you can see the once vibrantly green plantings are expiring. All these photos were taken this morning, April 20th.
