Weeping Willow

I spotted this weeping willow from outside the cemetery at 20th St. and 7th Ave. so when I got inside, I went to take a closer look.

I was familiar with these tresses...

of long tapering leaves.

What surprised me was how far these pendulous branches hung down,

...or rather, from how high up they came.

I think this is Salix babylonica, but it could be one of a few other willows that also weep.
