“The official tree of New York City is scaffolding”

New York City has a lot of scaffolding. Erin Gloria Ryan posted on Twitter on September 29, 2013:

“The official tree of New York City is scaffolding.”

Ryan’s tweet was included in WNYC Digital‘s “The 19 Truest Tweets About Life in New York City” on August 1, 2014. New York City does not have an official tree, but another joke—“The official tree of New York City is sidewalk futon”—was posted by Ashley Feinberg on Twitter on May 27, 2015.
