Sarah Portlock, Metrotech “This tree’s cosmetic surgery is almost undetectable. Maybe Goldie Hawn should get a new doctor.”

Gersh Kuntzman, Borough Hall “Borough President Markowitz proves that you don’t need to be Christian to put up a kick-ass tree (though corporate sponsors help).”

Ben Muessig, Park Slope “Like Washington’s Christmas Eve sneak attack on the Hessians at Trenton, this tree is a beautiful surprise. But I’m still calling it J.J. Byrne Park. Sorry, general.”

Mike McLaughlin, Boerum Hill “At the Belarusian Church on Atlantic Avenue, Russian Orthodox Christmas isn’t until Jan. 7. But I’m not letting it affect my Christmas present. Get it? Present?”

It’s that time again — when holiday lights make Brooklyn glisten, and The Brooklyn Paper team fans out in search of the borough’s best Christmas trees. Here’s the hard-hitting staff report.
