[WATCH] The Spectacular Fall Foliage On Governors Island From Above

Of the trees on the 172-acre island, it's the sumacs and sassafras trees on the South Island that will deliver the most vibrant autumnal pop of color. "We have four different species of sumac here, and they all have such beautiful deep red and orange coloring at this time of year," Gore said. "They’re the ones that really make The Hills stand out and look amazing. On the North Island, the Maples, Oaks and Gingko trees put on a great show with a wide variety of shades."
