Decorating the Tree at Columbus Park

December 8, 2007

I was walking along Court Street when the white aerial lift atop a bright orange bucket truck caught my eye. As I drew closer, I saw two workmen were using the vehicle to lift them as they decorated the Christmas tree at the steps of Borough Hall, in Columbus Park.

Although the sky was gray and the air was chill, the men were having a wonderful time, hanging ornaments on the bucket, the tree and themselves, swooping through the air, mugging for the camera and helping all of Downtown Brooklyn get into a holiday spirit.
