    Seems like a really nice lady. I have been seeing her for years.

    Also looking forward to the Park family of VT who have been selling outside St. Ann’s Church and near another church down Clinton St for years. We are lucky to have two wonderful tree vendors.

    I have been buying a tree on Clinton Street and Atlantic Ave for 20 years out of loyalty I go to this vendor he has a selection of large tall trees and I get a nice one that fits in my bay window!

    And I hope that the vendors on Montague Street have loyal customers too.

    Merry Christmas to all!

    One comment: I don’t think four years constitutes “many years”. The people who sell trees outside St. Ann and the Holy Trinity have been there many years as have the people on Clinton and Atlantic. Many of my neighbors think her trees are rather high-priced – how many of us plan to keep our trees up until Easter? Also, I don’t think she’s “servicing” Brooklyn Heights – as she said, she is there to make money, but I do admire her independence and drive.

    Adam Park’s trees have always been first rate–fresh and aromatic for ages.

    I enjoy Patty’s positive and friendly attitude, her beautiful,
    mellow German Shepherd, and Lucy the dog loves that she gives out treats. Nothing wrong with being warm and friendly while making money….more of us should try it!

    I just spoke to Patty,who would like to mention one more thing- she wants to help The Brooklyn New School on Henry Street raise much need funds. She will donate 20% of the purchase of a tree to any friends of that school.
