Visited Curbed this morning, and saw a link to a sad post:
The board of directors at 145 Hicks is trying to take down the huge elm tree in front of the building. This is one of the most venerable and lovely of our trees, is in perfect health, and removing it would be a terrible loss to our neighborhood. lease consider doing a piece about this. Shareholders and residents on the block are in the process of having any removal action stopped.
Buh Bye Big Elm Tree
According to a comment on BHB, the deed is already done:
