Tucked away from the honking horns and crowded sidewalks of midtown Manhattan sits Greenwich Village, a downtown neighborhood that spans west of Broadway to the Hudson River. Although only a quick subway ride from bustling Grand Central station, Greenwich Village seems almost like a different city entirely, its streets lined with ivy-covered houses and candlelit restaurants.

The sight and smell of Christmas before Thanksgiving was simply too much for one Manhattan landlord - so he took a curbside tree vendor to court Wednesday, seeking to enforce an obscure city law that bars the sale of the trees on streets before Dec. 1. Well-connected real-estate mogul Donald Zucker filed suit on Wednesday seeking an emergency court order to bar the tree seller from the sidewalk in front of his high-rise at 77 W. 15th St. Evergreen Stand, a Wisconsin-based Christmas-tree company, set up shop outside the Flatiron District building at Sixth Avenue on Nov. 24. Zucker asked the vendors to move their operation down the street, the suit says, but they refused, so Zucker resorted to suing them.
