Metal Rail Impales Large Tree on State Street, Brooklyn Heights

Photos by MK Metz
A long, narrow piece of metal is deeply imbedded in a tree trunk high above the ground on State Street in Brooklyn Heights (near Henry Street).

Though we have no idea how the metal got into the tree, from its height we'd guess it's the upper side rail of a semi trailer.

It's pretty shocking to see this thing sticking out of the tree.

Below is a diagram that shows an upper side rail, about the height of the metal impaled in the tree.
