That is cool. It's got a nice view up there.
That's and Empress Tree, or Paulownia tomentosa seedling. A century ago, the light seed pods used to be used like our modern styrofoam pellets for packing China porcelain. This why Empress trees are common in places where Chinese crates were unloaded from the ships or rail cars. You can see full grown specimens growing out of the concrete at the Union Street Bridge on the Gowanus Canal.
Thanks, Eymund. I had no idea. I love the trees at the Union Street Bridge. They look beautiful in the spring when they have their light purple flowers. I wonder how big this little guy will get high up on his perch above Smith Street.
