B Bar’s Trees Apparently Got in the Way of a Billboard, so They Were Cut Down
Nothing gets in the way of advertising. Not even mother nature.
Neighbors of B Bar & Grill on the Bowery (at East 4th Street) alerted us to the unfortunate decimation of the bar’s small tree grove in the front courtyard. The unconfirmed word on the street is that the green growth had gotten in the way of the advertisement real estate on the adjacent property (currently a Google Pixel banner) and the bar was forced to cut the trees.
B Bar staff working yesterday did corroborate this narrative, blaming the billboard for the excessive trimming. The decision may have been a legal matter.
“I didn’t think it was a big deal until I went by and looked again and was like, ‘damn that’s a shame,'” our tipster told us.
Just remember, these trees were here long before the billboard.
