I LOVE NY makes its predictions based on field reports from volunteer observers called “leaf peepers.” You can sign up to be one here.
New York’s Parks Department has its own local foliage report, which you can check out here, follows certain tree species (maple, Sweetgum and Black Gum, Ginkgo, Zelkova and Oak) that have particularly gorgeous colors in the fall. Once the tree species is in its glory, a checkmark will appear and the image will brighten on the site. You can check the tracker itself or follow @nycparks on Twitter to learn when they’re in their autumn color!
