Arbor Day Flip Album and Tin

The other day when someone asked me what my favorite thing about living in New York was, I quickly replied "the parks!"

Which is so ironic that I chose to live in the city but my favorite thing is being in nature. But the parks in NYC are definitely beautiful places to go to relax, read, and enjoy life. There are so many great ones in the city and each has it's own distinct personality. To celebrate Arbor Day, I created this little flip album about my favorite parks to keep in a reused Altoids Tin. It's a great reminder of the trees I love and makes me happy just looking at it.
