He Speaks for the Prospect Heights Trees

Speaking of pushing the envelope on real estate advertising, Prospect Heights' very own "quig," posting over at Daily Heights, opens up a can of Lorax (right) on an RE agent tacking sales flyers to the trees of his wilderness playground.

I want to offer my personal apologies to the owners of 436 Sterling for subverting their whole marketing efforts by tearing down two flyers that were tacked up on the trees on Underhill. Long story short, I told him that taping flyers to lampposts doesn’t set precedence like thumbtacking to a tree. We had words. And since I’ve lived in Brooklyn for a mere 15 years, not 42 like the agent, I had no right to tell him what to do. ... He asked me for my address so he can tell the sellers the reason the open house didn’t resemble a mosh pit was because of my efforts.Come on, trees? That's why they invented the web, people! (As a public service, we've provided two listings below for the address in question, with open houses on Sunday. Curbed.com cannot guarantee that they were the ones involved in this particular kerfuffle—or whether that's the guy who didn't read his Seuss.)
