A tree came down on West 75th Street between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues on Sunday evening.
Several cars were damaged and the street was blocked.
A red Prius seemed to absorb the bulk of the damage, with its roof crushed and front window broken. A Jeep parked behind the Prius also suffered a broken windshield.
By Monday morning, crews had removed the trunk and limbs, leaving just a fresh stump and several damaged cars.
According to the NYC Parks Tree Map, the tree was a thornless honey locust with a 16” diameter trunk. It was last inspected on April 20, 2023 and found not to be in need of any work.
