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.

NYC: Not For Wimps

As much as I love New York and am still ecstatic to be living here again, I’d be lying if I said it’s a hard place to dwell sometimes.

NYC rain

On a rainy day when something has gone wrong with the subway, and there are no cabs to be found, crying seems like a perfectly appropriate response.

But we deal. And sometimes buy ourselves bodega flowers.
