Albertson Station view N  11/2016 Archive: MTA  Fall has had a noticeably late start this year for two reasons - primarily warmer weather and the lack of significant rain in any semblance of regularity. The leaf fall this year is peaking as of now (Mid-November) after the peak fall colors which was later then normal.
