Who will win the battle of Hicks Street east between Warren Street and Congress—the age-old English Plane trees in the middle of the sidewalk or the pedestrians of Cobble Hill?!
Actually, it's no contest. The trees won a long time ago. Some nature-loving citizen or official, when laying out the sidewalk in front of the former-church-now-condo-complex on that block decided the beautiful trees would stay, even if that meant that, at three points in the block, there is barely enough room for a person to pass without toppling into Hicks Street. And forget about two people walking abreast. And absolutely forget about rolling a stroller down this block.
