Giant Linden Tree On Joralemon Street Just Fell On Someone's Car: Brooklyn Heights

At 5 p.m. this afternoon, when the streets were full of strolling pedestrians (celebrating the departure of Hurricane Irene), a giant Linden tree came crashing down on top of someone's car on Joralemon Street. The front windshield was cracked (and the roof may have been dented but it was hard to tell). The tree was growing in front of 49 Joralemon Street.

A white car, parked behind the blue one, can be seen buried in the branches. The tree's trunk didn't land on this one so it may not be very damaged.

Earlier this morning Hurricane Irene blew down the huge old elm tree in front of the Mansion House on Hicks Street.
