The Color of Autumn in Paley Park

Has anyone been to Paley Park lately? You know, that little gem tucked away on East 53rd Street. The one with the waterfall. I always loved it in autumn. Here's why:

The park is mostly paved, but it's planted with a grid of locust trees. In autumn, their delicate leaves change from green to a brilliant yellow. And during that brief period of time, they cast a wonderful glow over the "space" before falling to the ground and leaving the trees bare for winter.

I haven't had the opportunity to visit this year, but I am thinking of yellow Paley Park and am hoping that some of you have had the joy of catching its autumn splendor. If you've been by lately, let us know... are the yellow leaves still on the trees?
