If A Tree Falls In Brooklyn...

This isn't all that exciting, but what the hell.  Yesterday, this huge-assed branch fell off a tree in the next block from mine.  Hordes of people were not injured.  Property Damage is estimated (by me) to be in the tens of dollars. (The car in these shots belongs to a guy who restores them.  I didn't see any noticeable damage, but short of a massive dent, how would you know?.)

I have no idea what caused this sucker to fall down, but it was pretty big...25' or so long and 10-12" diameter where it broke off.  I'll be curious to see how long it sits there before the city hauls it away. (I'm pretty sure the Parks Dept. is responsible for street trees.)
