Request ID of this plant – 17/06/13 afternoon. Pics taken Highline Park, New York

Amorpha sp. Most likely Amorpha canescens if the stem and leaves are silvery. If not, A. fruticosa, a relatively tall species.

Judging by the pic you have sent I think this would be Amorpha fruticosa.

Amorpha fruticosa L. ??
