Cherry trees, like those located at New Haven Plaza in Far Rockaway, have been blooming all over Rockaway as the weather has begun to change in recent weeks. New York’s first cherry trees arrived in 1912 as a gift from Japan and were planted along Riverside Drive near Grant’s Tomb and Sakura Park. (Sakura means cherry blossom in Japanese.) Also that year, Japan gifted 3,000 cherry trees to Washington, D.C. where the national Cherry Blossom Festival is held annually. Photo by Miriam Rosenberg 28p1.jpg
