A few minutes ago we posted an iphone photo showing that big tree down in Seward Park. Just back from the scene — across the street from the Forward Building – here are some better shots.  From the sidewalk (on the north side of East Broadway) you can see the jagged edge of the tree trunk. The limbs and branches are hanging over the park fence. The westbound lane of East Broadway is blocked. No emergency crews on the scene. There were also some smaller branches down on East Broadway. Some of the bigger ones are scattered on in the courtyard of the Seward Park Library.
