Would you eat this plant?

Ever wondered if what grows in the park is edible? Steve "Wildman" Brill guided us through the do's and don'ts of Central Park.

He was a wealth of information and corny jokes. 

"I recycle my jokes because I care about the environment," Brill says.

He showed people all kinds of edible things in the park: wineberries, lamb's-quarters (wild spinach) and wood sorrel, which tastes like lemons.

He gives group tours. One couple on a date were having a Saturday adventure. A woman who lives two blocks from Central Park wanted to know if there was anything about the Manhattan that she didn't already know.
