Gallery: SNEAK PEEK: Nest-Shaped Treehouse Made of Hurricane Sandy-Fall...

"Nature is the architect," Roderick Romero told us rather modestly when asked about his latest creation, a giant "nest" made from trees knocked down by Hurricane Sandy at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. While it's true that the public art piece, dubbed "Sandy Remix", was born from the aftermath of the superstorm, we think Romero should at least take a little credit. He and his crew have been working through frigid temps, snow and rain to perfect the one-of-a-kind treehouse before it opens to the public on April 6th. If you want to get a sneak peek of this magical structure before the official launch, click through our gallery to take a private tour.

    Too bad the NY Safety Inspector, NY Fire Marshall, The Bloomberg Nanny/Gestapo, NY Health Inspector & all manner of other NY bureaucrats will kill this wonderfully creative exercise – or at a minimum require 24×7 supervision – or make it look only, no touch.
