Kids play near the pine tree.

A Post official snapped a shot of a large pine tree that toppled in Lafayette Park Saturday afternoon in D.C. The official reports children were playing in the area, but no one was injured when the tree came down.

"Lafayette Park" abuts the north side of Pennsylvania Avenue opposite the White House. This photo appears to have been taken nearer to Lafayette Elementary School on Broad Branch Road about five miles away from Lafayette Park. Could we get an editor who is familiar with the District to check this out?
