Title: Neighbors felt cut down

Caption: "Neighbors felt cut down--Argyle Road residents were stunned when workmen [in foreground] yesterday cut down four huge shade trees alongside site of addition to Public School 139 [located at 330 Rugby Road] at corner of Cortelyou Road. They insist city promised a year ago the trees would remain. One, a consulting engineer, figured cost of removal at $800. 'A ridiculous waste of taxpayers money and a handsome, tree-lined street is ruined in the bargain,' he said;" several wood-frame private houses in background.
