Some wind last night brought down a large branch of Tompkins Square Park’c central elm, the large tree in the central lawn of the park. Last year a companion elm slightly south of it came down completely.
It’s a beautiful tree, I hope the park’s department arborists don’t think it needs to come down. It doesn’t appear to be hollow, like the giant elm nearby they removed a month ago.
As usual, EV Grieve got the story first.
