Downtown, about 5th or 6th Avenue, there were these towering sculpture things. This is the pedestrian mall next to "Bankers Hall." These "trees" were erected by Brookfield property management as a compromise with City Hall. They chopped down the real trees during the building of Bankers' Hall II (not visible in this photo), but did not want to replant them. City Hall demanded that they do. They decided they would rather build giant metal trees with lights than plant trees. City Hall said that would be acceptable.
