50 Wards, 50 Weekdays: The 8th Ward...

Via The Chicago Neighborhoods!

Cederick Green's complaint about living in Marynook in the 8th Ward are the trees. It makes sense when you think about it:
“I love trees – don’t get me wrong. I just don’t like how many we have, and then when we have these major storms they become a big issue.”

“I think it was last year, we had the entire block was kind [of] confined to their houses ‘cause the entire street from one end to the other was completely covered in trees. We had somebody’s car get hit by a tree and crushed.”

It is a lucky man whose sole complaint about his neighborhood is too much greenery. But Grier’s point is this: many of the trees are in the parkway, so the city should be a step ahead of the weak ones.

“Make sure they’re manicured correctly and taken well care of," he advises.
