|2010 garden sign ripped out by strong winds|
Most New Yorkers are aware that on Sunday afternoon, July 25th, a tornado violently touched down in the Riverdale section of New York. However, many are not aware that the same storm did major tree damage in the Bruce Reynolds Memorial Garden in Isham Park.
As the result of the damage done to the tallest trees in Bruce's Garden, many are being removed. This is because they were deemed by the Department of Parks and Recreation's Forestry Department to be so damaged that they were unstable.

The photographs included here were taken on the evening of the 25th of July. We hope that they make everyone aware how critical the work being done is for the safety of all who enter the garden.
