A Tree Grows In Brooklyn!
Geraldo Rivera returned to his childhood park — our very own McCarren Park — and planted a tree. This tree replaces the original Geraldo tree which was uprooted during Super Storm Sandy. Geraldo donated that tree nearly 20 years ago. When it fell down the community reached out to him via his radio show and twitter and he wanted to help and donated the new tree.
It was nice to see Geraldo, the new Geraldo tree and the Geraldo Wishing Stump all in one place.
