A tree grows in Brooklyn. Lots of them actually.

“People in New York City suffer from allergies? REALLY?”

Yes, I’m here to tell you that we do. And this op-ed tells you why we may actually suffer more than in other cities.

Although non-New Yorkers might think of NYC as the Concrete Jungle, plenty of trees, grasses and other pollen producers do grow here – and well!

One source estimates that New York City has more than 5 million trees. We’re lucky to have such a green city, but yes, we sneeze a lot in season.

I’ll deal with the pollen just fine once my favorite Linden trees bloom.
