Inflatable tree thing closes 9th St. at Brandt School in Hoboken

Oh boy, some massive (likely property taxpayer funded) inflatable tree house is blocking the street near the Joseph Brandt Middle School today. Looks a bit angry from this angle (like a protesting or “occupying” tree house).

Not sure if this is supposed to be “educational” in any way, but when I was in school I don’t recall elaborate productions and inflatable props like this as part of the curriculum. Then again, I don’t think my school had running water or electricity either.

Always something going on in this town…
