A Nice Place for a Tree

Promoting green sidewalks

New York City’s Chinatown was Candy’s home for many years and it is a land of good food, colorful shops, and fresh produce. It is also a land of three trees in a ten-block radius. To jump-start the Great Chinatown Tree-Planting Movement, she used temporary spray chalk to mark spots on the sidewalks for the City to drop some green ones. Thanks to the progressive ideas of PlaNYC, the City makes it easy for residents to get involved in tree-planting through the new MillionTreesNYC program. Shooting for one million new trees in the next decade, the program gives hope to the leafless sidewalks of Chinatown that yearn to be charmingly lined with more than piles of garbage bags. We call those black bushes.
