Reader Contribution du Jour: Arriva Dirce!

Yours truly has developed quite a fascination with the proliferation of prodigal Christmas trees in our fine community. If the above photograph as taken by “French toast”  is any indication, it would appear I am not alone. After some consideration I have decided a project is in order. The objectives are simple enough:

  1. Document Greenpoint/north Brooklyn’s feral Christmas tree population in the hope of
  2. determining exactly how long our fellow citizens are harboring these conifers.

To my recollection the latest discarded Christmas tree I have seen was in April. Surely, we can do better than that! So, if you see an interesting feral Christmas tree please take a photograph of it, note the location and send them to me at: missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. To get everyone in the proper post-holiday spirit, here is a tree I found tied to street sign in front of Biedronka this afternoon.

Note the 24 ounce bottle of Zywiec. Nice.

73/365 - Green Street, Greenpoint.

I suppose March 14th is as good as time as any to get rid of that Christmas tree. Sheesh.

The Java Street Drinking Forest (AKA: The Greenpoint Homeless Xmas Tree Intake Center) isn’t quite what it used to be. Nonetheless, if anyone reading this is in the market for a pre-owned Christmas tree they’re still there for the taking— albeit a little worse for wear!
