Upper East Creep...Do not be afraid.
Some questions come around every year that aren't really questions. They're rumours. Maybe competing interests start them, i dunno. Like I imagine the guys who make their living repointing brick started this one. Thats the one that says allowing Virginia Creeper, or Ivy to grow up a building will cause terrible damage to the integrity of a building structure. While its true some types of Ivy can cause damage, its minimal and more likely to happen DURING the process of removal. Anyhow this is Va Creeper in NYC's upper east side, around 73st and York I think. Do not be afraid! Its grip is actually pretty fragile and definitley isn't doing any harm. In fact in the Fall this will be a wall of mind blowing sunset oranges and red. Then its gone till Spring.
