Jewelweed, Alley Pond Park

Impatiens capensis growing in Alley Pond Park near what remains of the Old Vanderbilt Motor Parkway or Long Island Motor Parkway. It made me feel like I was biking through the Native Flora Garden. It's kind of funny that the remaining stretch of this parkway, built by Vanderbilt for cars exclusively in the early 1900's, is now a pretty sweet bike/pedestrian path.
