Climate change illustrated

Here's an interesting illustration of climate change in New York City:

This first picture, from the 9/22/08 NY Times, is of the Cubs-Giants playoff game on Oct. 8, 1908 at the Polo Grounds (north Manhattan).

Notice how the trees are bare.

Now compare this to a Webcam picture I just captured today, of Pier A in Hoboken, NJ (just across the river, to the west, of NYC):

The trees are still green and don't even appear to be changing color yet.

This last one isn't the best picture and perhaps you have a better one -- if so, please let me know.
