There is a single rosette with deeply notched leaves similar to dandelions. There is a single stem that branches off with a cluster if yellow flowers.
Laura comes through again!!! Thanks. I was making no headway in spotting it, even having looked right through Crepis species in my badly outdated MoVFotC. (There was no drawing for it.)

Thanks so much folks. That was most helpful. It presents much like a dandelion until the stalk shot up. 🙂

Check out Asiatic hawkbeard (Youngia japonica aka Crepis japonica). https://www.google.co.jp/search?q=Youngia+japonica&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAoIvE45fMAhWDNJQKHRBrD0MQ7AkIMQ&biw=1366&bih=598#imgrc=hD7CdfJZcRDEAM%3A

This plant pops up everywhere at this time of year. It looks a lot like lettuce, but I’m pretty sure it’s not. (For one thing, a nibble of it doesn’t produce a taste at all resembling any of the many wild lettuces I’m familiar with). A few years ago, I nailed it down with my copy of Vascular Plants of the Carolinas, but I can’t remember exactly what it was. I’m going to start with Sally’s suggestion and try to identify it again.

I’m thinking wild lettuce. Here’s one image, see what you think. http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp95/RapunzelBeth/Foraging%20in%20Inwood%20Park/IMG_4373.jpg

I think this is Hawkweed, but I am not sure what kind. There are many species of the yellow color. My guess is Yellow Hawkweed.
