Call us crazy or of a wishful thinking mind but we don’t recall these tree pits ever being on the West side of Frederick Douglass Boulevard in Harlem between 115 and 116 in front of Harlem Shambles.
Regardless we certainly don’t recall there being any trees there.
Whatever the case, we really hope tress are on the way. And all along FDB from 110 to 125. That was certainly the plan over 7 years ago, at the start of the recent boom on FDB.
