The willow trees of Loisaida

After my post Friday about a possibly endangered willow tree on 11th Street... I decided to photograph a few of the other willows near Avenue C...






Enjoy them while you can... you never know when one will be removed...

Previously on EV Grieve:

I spent my Saturday doing the exact same thing. It was such a beautiful day I couldn't help but smile. Those trees really make it feel like a different place and time.

Thank you! I love this trees.

Side note: I once saw one man administer a bump of cocaine to another man in a wheelchair under the willow in the first photo.

Thank you for sharing these, and for posting the history of the trees. I adore the willows around here; some of my photos are at http://www.flickr.com/photos/salim/sets/72157622536835555/
