Discarded Christmas Trees Find New Life as a Floating Forest in Queens

New, 1 comment

The life of a Christmas tree is typically a short one, filled with the highest of highs (getting strung up with lights and tinsels) and the most brutal of lows (being unceremoniously dumped on the sidewalk sometime in mid-January). But a few lucky trees are getting a second chance at glory thanks to artist Michael Neff, who has taken discarded trees from around Brooklyn and Queens and turned them into an installation called Suspended Forest under the BQE. This is the fifth year that Neff has created the installation, and this year, for the first time, he's having it inside an actual art space—The Knockdown, a former factory in Queens.
