Now that summer is really and truly upon us, we thought we'd explore some of the lesser-known green gems tucked away in far-flung corners of New York City. When everyone you know is spreading an old sheet out on a grassy knoll in Prospect Park or taking their cousin for a stroll along the High Line, a storehouse of under-the-radar spots becomes crucial. From unexpected oases in the atria of office buildings (Ford Foundation, we're looking at you) to 17th-century farmhouses that still keep piglets in a pen and crops a-growin' (oh hey, Queens County Farm Museum), there's a destination for every stripe of flora- and fauna-lover in all five boroughs. Follow our map, and you'll be trading in that concrete jungle for a real one (well, almost) in no time.

Beautiful picture-scapes. Loved the willow tree. Haven't seen one of those for ages.
