Great Birnam Wood to Brooklyn Heights Comes

What eerie happenstance! Espied from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, it seems Great Birnam Wood has marched upon the future home of Brooklyn Bridge Park.

But hold -- Macbeth need not fear. The Brooklyn Eagle says the trees will soon as not find their separate ways throughout that fair rambling plain.

Macbeth was told by the three witches that he would "never vanquish'd be until Great Birnam Wood to high Dunsinane Hill shall come against him." Macbeth took the prediction lightly, until the woods showed up.
