Winds knock over Mayor’s Christmas Tree in Manhattan


The Manhattan Mayor’s Christmas Tree was blown down on Thursday due to high winds.

The city tweeted on Thursday that the tree had been knocked over due to wind.

They said the Forestry Department will remove the tree.

The city commission will decide what they want to do about the tree, the city tweeted. 

No one was injured.
