A small sapling, barely more than a twig, now stands in Asser-Levy Park surrounded by aged oaks and venerable maples. It will one day grow to be a leafy adult callery pear tree - but to many it’ll remain known as the Survivor Tree.
The sapling was planted yesterday adjacent to the September 11 Memorial at Asser-Levy Park, just off Surf Avenue and West 5th Street. It was announced this morning during a ceremony by the locally-based September 11 Family Group. More.
