As one long time Staten Island resident remarked to me as I was capturing pictures on this nice fall day, "This is the most beautiful fall colors I've seen here in many years". - He said a mouthful.
Too bad I had to record them with my point and shoot. I had to wait several months until I got my tax refund back to purchase my first DSLR.
