At McCarren Park, Newspapers Do Grow on Trees

BY Jeff Mann

McCarren Park users were greeted by a new art installation this week. Made up of hundreds of rolled up newspapers, the object described as a lily, mushroom or tree among other suggestions, mysteriously appeared near the park entrance at Lorimer Street and Driggs Avenue, suspended from a tree branch by a thin wire. Authorities said they have no idea who put it there or why.

For our part, we’re just happy to see someone buying a whole lot of newspapers!
