There is a giant elm in the middle of Madison Square Park in New York City. In its more than 250 year life-span, this tree has seen a lot of change. The land was first set aside as a public space in 1686, and in the years since, it has been a military arsenal, a home for children, a baseball field, a Civil War campground, and more. This beautifully illustrated picture book shows the evolution of the space surrounding the tree and the history of New York.
