Brooklyn's Tree Assassin

New, 8 comments

The summer's most riveting read has nothing to do with teenage vampires or girls with dragon tattoos. It's about a tree branch breaker in Crown Heights, and if you don't believe us, check out this wild ride of a Brooklynian thread that has stunning plot twists (the tree vandal's name discovered! His address revealed!), police involvement, amateur psychological diagnoses and other twists that will eventually make for a fantastic Jonathan Lethem true crime novel. [Brooklynian]
