A Tree Falls in Brooklyn [Video]

The graceful tree-lined streets of Ditmas Park proved a particularly dangerous place to be during Hurricane Sandy. A tree on Ditmas Avenue killed two friends walking a dog when it fell on them sometime late Monday or early Tuesday. Many others damaged cars and homes. Special contributor Ian Lamb shot this video of one down just north of Cortelyou Road.

The tree came down in the early afternoon on Tuesday. “It did some damage to the two houses across the street. There were many other trees and limbs down in the neighborhood, some cars crushed, but that was the biggest I saw,” Mr. Lamb writes.
