Who can ID this tree with the bark peeling off? It's growing in Manhasset, Long Island, NY in front of Northshore Hospital. Thank You.

difficult to tell as the leaves are not clear.
the bark does remind me of birch however.

Thanks Eileen. Pic 3 upper right is probably the clearest leaf pic. Maybe if you zoomed in close you'll get a better view. I'll try to get a better leaf pic.

Betula papyrifera? common names paper birch or canoe birch...

Maybe a form of Himalayan Birch (Betula utilis)? Possibly attacked by borers?
