— One Day It Will Please Us To Remember Even This —

At this site stood Fluxhouse Cooperative II, the first co-op in SoHo and the location of performances by Alan Kaprow, Yoko Ono, and Richard Foreman's Ontological-Hysteric Theater. George Maciunas, a founding member of Fluxus, purchased 80 Wooster Street in 1968 with a vision of making SoHo a mecca for artists, architects, composers, and designers. Maciunas occupied the basement while the first floor was home to Jonas Mekas' Film Makers Cinematheque, a combination theater and performance space. This tree and the one to the south were transplanted by Maciunas from a nearby abandoned lot. When city officials confronted Maciunas, he suggested they remove the tiny trees themselves; they never returned. The trees, now over 30 feet tall, have become a symbol of SoHo's recent history as a residential district.
