We found this caterpillar in the middle of a street close to Prospect Park
Green caterpillar with stick color face
It looks similar but this one didn't have any hair and the rings weren't as marked as the Polyphemus moth. We should have taken a better picture!
I think this is probably a Polyphemus Moth caterpillar - Antheraea polyphemus.http://bugguide.net/node/view/427
