Citibank Rooted in Sheepshead Bay

This sign was spotted at Citibank (1528 Sheepshead Bay Road) a couple of days after National Arbor Day last month, so we thought it was put up in its honor.

But, the customer service agent at the help desk wasn’t aware of any such connection, furrowing her brow at the mention of the strange words. She did say that it was not a Citibank-wide project, and that the artwork was done by someone at the branch.

While it’s not exactly a fruit-bearing tree — so long as this Citibank branch can stay rooted in its central location on Sheepshead Bay Road, then I suppose we can use banking features as a substitute for orchard fruit.
