This is one of the trees planted by NYC's "Plant a Million Trees" initiative. It is a very "dirty" tree. Has been dropping flower blossoms for 2 weeks now. Not a clue what it is.. Any help please?

Kinda looks like mine but mine is a grafted locust tree...very tall & yes it likes to drop its blooms & petals in the wind. Leaves are the same.

Thank you.. I was looking thru the web and sort of came to that conclusion. However, I wanted the experts opinion..

I was looking at the website - you'd think they'd have a list of the types of trees planted.
I used to pass one unusual type on Carmine Street in the Village and always wondered what it was.
I don't work down there anymore and never had a camera with me.
Usually they are ginkgo, locust and Callery pear.

I think mine was grafted with a chain tree as the blooms are the same.
