if these trees could talk

Starting June 21st, the trees along the Bronx concourse actually will. Well, sort of. Every tree will be assigned a phone number. People call the number and audio guides tell them the story of the street the tree inhabits. Effectively, creating a virtual tree museum. I love the idea of every tree having its own story to tell, though I feel like these stories may get a little rowdy it wasn't named the boogie down bronx for nothing.
