As Sandy prepares to make landfall, and we worry about the giant tree over our own house, Prospect Park is already feeling the wrath. The park's Facebook page posted this picture (I know exactly where this is on the Neathermead because of that unique tree behind the fallen one), and they report:
is a very limited staff working in the Park today and they are using
extreme caution while they check on the condition of the Park. One of
them sent in this photo during their inspection rounds.
Several branches and 2 trees are down in the Park so far as a result of the gusting winds. We have a report that one of the downed tress nearly hit a runner. Please stay out of the Park for your own safety and the safety of others!
