A block party to welcome 20 new trees on East 14th Street
There's a block party until 5 p.m. today on East 14th Street between Avenue B and Avenue C.
As a resident shares with us:
"It's to celebrate the arrival of 20 trees. This took about five years of petitioning the city … and is pioneering because the infrastructure on this block with the Con Edison steam pipes running along here made it tricky. Previously no trees were able to be planted here."
