Greenwich Village Treehouse

A treehouse in the backyard of a New York home may not seem to share the same glory as these other arboreal works of art, but this is “the little treehouse that could,” according to its owner. Shortly after Melinda Hackett put up the circular cedar treehouse for her three girls, the police showed up at her door. A neighbor had complained about the structure and filed a complaint with the city, but after months of legal battles, Hackett won. Not only was the treehouse allowed to stay, but it was also granted landmark status.
