We're visiting New York's native forest and foraging for food in Central Park.

Picture it.  New York City minus the high-rise buildings.  Anyone who wants to get a glimpse of what the city looked like before all of the concrete, should look no further than the New York Botanical Garden.

On this week's Cityscape we’ll pay a visit to a 50-acre native forest in the Bronx.  We'll also go foraging for food in Central Park, and we're not talking about looking for the nearest hot dog vendor.  We're talking about seeking out edible plants.  Believe it or not, Central Park is ripe for the picking.
