I Think That I Will Never See...

NoLandGrab's roving photographer, Steve Soblick, found a lovely new addition to the footprint: tree stumps! The addition of the tree stumps doesn't seem to be concerning residents so much as the removal of 85 trees permitted by the NYC Parks Department. In exchange, 85 trees are to be planted elsewhere in the city. Perhaps these trees were not strong enough to survive the planned traffic/air pollution onslaught, and will be replaced by new trees that are "resistant to pollution." Or maybe Travis Clarke had the right hunch last summer when he presented his art piece "Wishing dead trees back to life."
