Not that you need a christmas tree now, but I thought it would be alright to post this because, all season long, we’ve been seeing these tree vendors and I thought to myself ‘what’s the story behind this?’ Like almost everything else in New York, you can buy your Christmas tree twenty-four hours a day, most likely a few blocks from your house. In this video, “Tree Corner,” the documentary filmmaker Elif Alp takes a closer look at the tree-sellers and their pop-up market on the corner of 145th Street and Broadway in Manhattan.
