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!
