The Christmas Trees are Back!

9 Days ago I wrote a post questioning how Long Islanders may be too apathetic. Despite having a record low number of Long Islanders get out and vote on November 3rd, we all went nuts over the Roosevelt Field Mall “Holiday Display” for not having a Christmas Tree. Well… The trees are back and there are a LOT of them!

Here is the before pic:

This pic was taken by Newsday a few days after the public went nuts over the original glacier display. The mall had just flanked the glacier display with 2 little trees.

Here is the after:

This taken today (11/18). Completely redone in a true Christmas theme! Nice Job!

Roosevelt Field Mall Trees


The people do have power when we speak up. We just have to use it. Now what issue should we go after next?

      On nov 15th Newsday’s latest article about this just states that “The mall now features a new tableau with seven Christmas trees, six outsized red presents with gold bows, two reindeer and, of course, Santa. The futuristic glacier displays met a similar fate in the five other malls.” They really went over the top with having trees all over the Mall. Newsday needs to include updated pictures.
