A Tree Grows In (a) Brooklyn (Bound "N" Train)

"The Big Apple" and "The Concrete Jungle".  Those nicknames for New York City are about as close to nature that people usually come when they talk about The City. The only green that pops to mind is the money that the bankers are passing around to each other on Wall Street or the color that some people might turn when they catch a whiff of that first-hot-day-of-the-summer smell that wafts from the subway station in the beginning of July.

Well to dispel some of that myth, here's a short clip of some verdant oddness that we captured on the "N" subway this afternoon.  There may not be much foliage that grows in the neighborhoods of most New Yorkers, but that doesn't stop them from trying to get some into their homes.  And since most New Yorkers don't drive cars, unlike the grand majority of people in the United States, the way you import plant life into your pad requires a MetroCard from you and a bit of patience from your fellow straphangers.
