It’s almost two weeks now and as of this morning (11:42 a.m.) the McCarren Park Hypodermic Tree is still in effect. My dedication to documenting this caught the attention of a passerby. He too took a moment to capture this curiosity with his camera.
After asking me how long this had been there (I told him “about two weeks”) he noted it had been used and added:
Kids could get their hands on this. That’s not good.
