NYC Flushing meadow park lake

do you think they will be plants in there at the summer or spring? and maybe some driftwood and stuff that i could pull out of the water and use?

Lately, there's been joggers, etc. beaten up in Flushing Meadow Park. I don't recall them being caught...

Just a word of caution, be careful.

I don't think there's plants out there currently, the other day driving by on the Van Wyck...parts of the lake's surface was still frozen.

No, everything there is immersed and full of urban filth.
the best places in the Northeast for plants and wood
will be rural running water rivers and streams, not lakes.
most small lakes are man made anyway, so there is very
limited flora and fauna.
