A hail storm on Monday a little after 6 p.m. was the latest shock to hit the city. Ira Schwarz took the video below.
The storm knocked down several trees in the city, including the willow below. Michele Marut took the photo in Riverside Park South.
“As of 5 p.m. today, we have received nearly two dozen tree-related service calls in Manhattan, and five of them are for reports of downed trees,” a Parks Department spokesperson told us. “We are actively inspecting and resolving these service requests.”
