Member Stephen DeVillo (center in the photo, with Ellie Carren and Matt Malina) led the Friends' first circumnavigation of 94-acre Jerome Park Reservoir on May 23. Lively commentary focused on the Croton system and interesting history of the surrounding neighborhoods. The beautiful allee of trees in the photo is in Fort Independence Park at the reservoir's north end. The fort that once stood here was sited by George Washington (see plaque).
