There is something interesting happening in Queens.
Artist Michael Neff has created a Suspended Forest, built from the many discarded Christmas trees currently littering the sidewalks of New York. Neff has done this before, under the BQE, but this time he's got a legal space to display the arborcide in—no longer in the open air, the space is stuffed with the scent of pine and death. These were all collected in Brooklyn and installed a few days ago at the Knockdown Center in Maspeth, Queens, where they will remain for the month of January. Behold, your discarded Christmas trees and yuletide joy are now art.
