I was really intrigued by Seward Park and this large circle in the center, so I went around the corner from the fair. I saw a little kid throwing a brick at the tree, repeatedly and laughing hysterically, probably trying to shake it so the leaves would trickle down. I told him he was hurting the tree and he took out a band-aid and almost put it on the bark! Just when I thought this kid might be kind of sadistic he turned out to be really kind. His mom and I, laughing, explained that the tree will be fine without the band-aid. Fun experience in Seward Park.
