on December 5, 2009
The corner of 51st Street and Telegraph Avenue might normally conjure images of fried chicken and buttery rolls with sides of coleslaw and cookies from Bakesale Betty, but this time of year, it’s all about the Christmas tree at
this intersection. The smells of cedar and pine hit tree-shoppers as they are greeted with a wall of green at the Simonis Quality Christmas tree lot entrance and begin their search through the labyrinth of trees for the perfect evergreen.
