'The Upper Eastsiders' cries were heartrending, but futile......'

The ladies are in an uproar over Mayor de Blasio cutting down 8 trees to put in a garbage transfer station.

See link for video and story.

The NYDailyNews has a big article on it. There were a lot more people there than just the grandmothers...
