What are they foraging for in Central Park?

I've seen a few people picking through leaves in Central Park, looking for white "pods".

I've heard that it's a delicacy. Anyone know what these are?

Thanks.

    They're looking for gingko nuts.

      This may help shed even more light on the Central Park foraging. I have yet to see this during my daily run around the lower loop.
