A Tree Still Grows in Brooklyn
There are some who ignore the pandemic, as if it’s not really real. And there are those who have gone into hiding, waiting to come outside and play again. But in Brooklyn, the pandemic is less an obstacle than an impediment. Life still goes on. Restaurants have usurped parking spots. Masks are ubiquitous with as much variety as Brooklyn itself. In this amazing city masquerading as a small town, a tree—and the life it symbolizes—still grows. And continues to bear fruit.
