Cultivated shrubs with green fruits.

Aronia Species?
Aronia melanocarpa

Thanks … I had sent some pictures to … and he too thought my id was correct.

yes. its naïve new England plant

If it is an Aronia the 2 that are planted at Battery Park are listed as:
A. arbutifolia ‘Brilliantissima’ aka Red Chokeberry and
A. melanocarpa aka Black Chokeberry;

what month was this picture taken? and yes looks like chokecherry. a native new Englander

Thanks for the two Aronia Species.
To me the fruits look closer to Black Chokeberry, Aronia melanocarpa.
These pictures were taken on 20th June,17.
