For some reason, that tree reminds me of Six Feet Under, the series on HBO. It had a wonderful tree in its opening credits.
This was taken from the window of the Acela, the high-speed train running from Boston to Washington DC. I took it earlier this week for a business trip and snapped this picture on my way back to New York. I have no clue where it was exactly and it is probably not technically New York City. But, as this is one of the things you can easily do from NYC (hop on a train in Penn Station and head to DC or Boston), I'll include it here.
