Collateral Damage: Park Slope Car Loses Battle with Tree
A lot of trees and tree branches came down during the weekend storm (like these in the South Slope) and we're actually surprised there wasn't more damage. In any case, yesterday a reader sent us an email about and a photo of the aftermath at Eighth Avenue and Garfield in the Slope, where a car clearly ended up on the losing end of a battle with a tree. Our reader writes:
During the recent wind, a tree on 8th Ave. at Garfield (in Park Slope) fell on a car. I'm not sure exactly when it happened, but noticed it yesterday. Looks like someone did a fast job of getting the tree cut up and out of the street. My friends and I wondered if the owner of the car knew about it yet. It looks like the tree's trunk had rotted and it gave way.It would be a nasty surprise to come out and find that.
