The New York Botanical Garden is livestreaming leaves changing colors because it’s fall, damn it

By Clayton Guse

There's nothing quite like fall in New York. Sweaters are unearthed from the bottoms of storage bins, people finally start covering up their nasty toes and the foliage across town becomes downright majestic. But there is perhaps no organization that is more stoked about the leaves turning than the New York Botanical Garden. The garden set up a livestream this week with one single goal: show the leaves changing colors.

Now, you might think that a better way to show the evolution of the city's foliage from green to brown would be a time-lapse. After all, leaves don't change their hues instantly, and watching them slowly transform is akin to watching paint dry. But that's not the point for the NYBG. They're going to show you what fall in New York looks like, one second at a time.
