Wandering around Harlem recently, we spotted this structure in the back of someone’s brownstone. It appears to be a clever combination porch and treehouse, literally built AROUND the tree growing in the yard.

Whoever made it clearly didn’t want to mess with the old tree growing very close to the house. So they found away to…embrace it.
