"Francis Lewis Park a hidden gem in Whitestone that is host to hundreds of weddings a year,not a weekend goes by without brides and grooms being photographed here. It is also host to hundreds of children daily. I took this photo today after noticing this tree two weeks ago. As I approached, I could not believe that the only thing preventing children from getting too close was a ten foot piece of caution tape. Nothing around the entire tree, just one side.
Why does everything that happen in our neighborhood include government agencies tempting fate as if hoping someone gets hurt. I witnessed a Parks Department truck drive by me as I was snapping this picture. He drove by an overloaded garbage can with garbage all over the floor around it. How long would it have taken to at least pull the hanging branch down to the floor instead of tempting fate."
