From the NY Times:
It’s going to take more than the mere passing of Christmas to stop Ha Choi from selling his Christmas trees.
He has about 300 of them still for sale at his stand on Northern Boulevard in Flushing, Queens, where they still stand leaning on wooden racks.
A sign announces a sale – “Big Sale” — on the trees, with a strapping 8-footer going for a measly $39.99.
“I ordered 850 trees this year, and I have 300 left,” said Mr. Choi, who immigrated from Seoul, South Korea, 15 years ago and runs the small Ha Young flower and garden center in a food mall on the boulevard near 150th Street. “Last year, I ordered 1,250.”
