Brooklyn Papers reports that trees are being planted in DUMBO.
“The streetscapes in this neighborhood have been neglected for years, not only due to a lack of trees, but also basic things like sidewalks and sewers,” Tucker Reed, executive director of the DUMBO Improvement District, tells the paper. “We’re just trying to catch up to the rest of the city.”
Planting began Friday on Front Street. Streetlamps will follow in the Spring, the paper says.
UPDATE: DUMBO NYC has posted photos of some of the new trees.
