Well, it turns out that the rumors are true... last week, workers removed the stump from the Irene-damaged tree in Tompkins Square Park.
The rumor was that the replacement tree would be a memorial for the late Steve Jobs.
Yesterday afternoon, workers from Bette Midler's New York Restoration Project planted this Dawn Redwood tree... A worker told EV Grieve reader peter radley that, yes — this tree will be dedicated to Steve Jobs... (We also reached out to the NY Restoration Project for comment...)
We're not sure about any kind of permanent plaque ... Bobby Williams was also on the scene...
