Greenpoint Photo Du Jour: Transmitter Park

While hardly the most comely of open spaces (although has attained some popularity with a certain segment of the population, as seen above) I have it on very good intelligence WNYC Transmitter “Playground” could be shuttered as early as next Tuesday, August 27. Why, you ask? Because they will need time to make preparations for the ground-breaking ceremony that will come to pass August 3, 2010 at 11:30 a.m. Who knew wood chips needed so much fussing over?

WNYC Transmitter Park Groundbreaking Ceremony
August 3, 2010 at 11:30 a.m.
Greenpoint Avenue and (roughly) West Street
Brooklyn, New York 11222

In closing it has been brought to my attention that a fig tree graces this site. For those of you who are not in the know (I didn’t) apparently fruit-bearing trees are not allowed on city park land. If you are interested in giving this tree a forever home please shoot me an email at: missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. I will forward it to the appropriate parties. Thanks!

  2. If anyone has space please take the tree. They are really low maintenance. In fact I suggest letting it be, fig trees thrives best left alone. Mine is even older than I am, it was transplanted from a farm next door when I was five. It still bears fruit 50 years later.

    And figs are yummy.

  4. I’m going to find out who stated that fruit trees are illegal in NYC parks. If that’s true, then why can Central Park have fruit trees? There are cherry trees all over the park.

Tell me what you're thinking...
