Jamie Dimon Spending $1 Million to Landscape His Own Backyard


Oh, kidding. The JPMorgan CEO and noted nature lover announced this morning that the bank would donate $1 million to Central Park—which the native New Yorker called his “backyard growing up,” in the press conference with Mayor Bloomberg—in order to replant trees that fell during that crazy storm this past August. “New York City is the heart of our operations, and Central Park is the heart of New York,” Dimon said. “We knew we needed to move quickly to restore a place that is such an integral part of New Yorkers’ lives.” Also, let’s face it, the views from on high don’t look as good when the trees are all scraggly.
