The Mayor and Tyra Plant a Tree!
While out filming livable streets improvements around Gansevoort and Ninth Avenue today, we roamed into a quagmire of paparazzi in a feeding frenzy. Soon it was apparent why: Mayor Bloomberg and Tyra Banks showed up briefly to beautify our physically separated bike lane on Ninth Avenue by planting a tree!
As Streetfilms viewers know we are the beacon of breaking Ninth Avenue News - chronicling the continuing metamorphosis of NYC DOT's innovative initiative for cyclists. Flashback here to Halloween when some guy in a purple cape was running around saying he wanted a tree. Well, he got it!
It looks here sometime maybe in the spring we’re going to have some
greenery planted, a tree, a shrub, I don’t know. I love greenery,
I’ll take anything.
