Posted by Flavio on the TA Facebook page. Update: Not the only tree being cut down.
Update #2 - July 10th: The video, which showed a worker cutting parts of a Oval tree, has been removed by the YouTube uploader. I wonder why? There are also reports of other trees around Stuy Town and Peter Cooper being cut down. Looks like I have a weekend tour of the complex, with a camera, ahead of me, weather permitting.
This CW crew seems to be worse than Tishman Speyer. I'm sure none of us ever thought that could be possible! At least Tishman Speyer planted (and over-planted) trees, these CW guys seem to be fixated on cutting them down. Sure, something will go up or be planted in their place--one thinks/hopes--but trees that have been around longer than a few years are impossible to replace. STPCV used to be known as "A Park Runs Through It" but now it's "A Wasteland Runs Through It."
