Suddenly, it seems, Westport has a magnificent new skyscraper.
It’s almost like our own Trump Tower, though I hate to use the “T” word.
Of course, it’s just the ginormous construction crane that has captivated Westporters since it first rolled onto the Bedford Square construction site in September.
Now it’s decorated for the holidays. Strung with bright lights — and topped with a Rudolph-like red nose — it’s an unexpected, delightful sight. And you can see it from everywhere.
Enjoy it while you can. Years from now — when today’s kids are all grown up — they’ll scratch their heads and wonder: Was there really once this amazingly huge Christmas tree downtown?
Nah, they’ll conclude. It must have just seemed that big ’cause we were so small, way back when.
