New York’s wet season sends mushroom hunters in frenzy, NY Times

The year 2011 is New York City’s fourth wettest year ever recorded and it is keeping mushroom hunters busy, the NY Times reported.

“It’s that kind of year that people will talk about in the future: ‘Remember 2011, the year the hen took over New York?’ ” said Gary Lincoff, author of “The Complete Mushroom Hunter” and an instructor of a mushroom-identification class at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx.

Even in a normal year, Mr. Lincoff said, “The city is a phenomenal place to go mushrooming.”
