As a matter of fact, before it was filled in by development, most of lower Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn and Queens were swamplands. The area where the World Trade Center stood was once really part of the river, and Battery Park was separated from the main part of Manhattan by water.

I think we have to start another thread about swamplands! This one's supposed to be about forests.

Not sure about NJ Meadowlands never heard of it . I do know Manhattan was sorta swampy .You see pictures below in old days.

A marsh is a wet grassland. A swamp is a wet woodland.

I can't pick a "best." These pictures are all beautiful! I really love living in the Black Hills, though.
