Yes, it's a tuliptree all right. Liriodendron tulipifera, also known as "yellow-poplar" further south. Wonderful trees, real racers, shooting up for the sun, one of the tallest species on the east coast. Your young one should have enormous leaves, greedy for the light. When you're biking up that long slow grind on the Drive, look to the top of the tuliptree at the north end of Nellie's Lawn. It's called Elizabeth's Tulip Tree and often has a red-tailed hawk in it.
