More about the Hare Krishna Tree

The Hare Krishna Tree, standing tall within Tompkins Square Park, has its own tale to tell, separate from the cinematic world. Rooted in New York’s East Village, this tree has been a silent witness to countless stories and events, including the 1966 chanting sessions that marked the birth of the Hare Krishna Movement in the USA. Today, while only one tree stands as a testament to this history, in the film’s portrayal, its twin was still present.
