Survey of New York City Mushrooms

Van Cortlandt Park, the Bronx

 

NYC – Westchester County Line, Van Cortlandt Park S. bet. Broadway and Jerome Ave., the Bronx

Acres: 1146.43

Van Cortlandt Park–more than a thousand acres atop the ridges and valleys of the northwest Bronx–is New York City’s fourth largest park. Playing fields and playgrounds are scattered about the park’s edges, surrounding a richly forested heartland fed by Tibbets Brook.  The park is home to the country’s first public golf course, the oldest house in the Bronx, and the borough’s largest freshwater lake. [NYC Parks]

 

Summary: We have found over 200 different mushrooms by surveying only a very small part of Van Cortlandt Park. We search the wooded area north of 242nd St. (at the end of the #1 subway line), our traditional summer foray site, and the wooded area at the end of the #4 subway line, our traditional winter foray site.
