OMG. I was just there last weekend!

New York's Central Park, and its beautiful gem Conservatory Garden, were devastated by a powerful thunderstorm Tuesday night. This is the New York Times description of a storm described as more damaging than any in decades.

Scores of trees were toppled. One of the officials describes the smell of fresh wood that has been blown apart.

I returned Sunday night from a beautiful weekend in New York City, and I visited the Conservatory Garden for a quiet and heartfelt talk with an old friend, and we were comforted by the delicate beauty of this place.

The garden is a perfectly manicured six acres at about 106th Street, the only formal garden in Central Park. I don't think I can stand to see pictures of the storm's damage there.
