Rock­e­feller Plaza, New York

The People's Friend Special - - HERITAGE 29 -

There’s been a tree on the plaza since the days of the Great De­pres­sion, when con­struc­tion work­ers col­lected their pay un­der­neath it af­ter labour­ing on the high rises. More than half a mil­lion peo­ple pass it ev­ery day, and once the hol­i­day sea­son is over the tree is brought down and milled to be used in build­ing homes by char­ity Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity.
