Tomato Plant Grows Out of Sidewalk Crack

Move over, dandelions. The sidewalk weeds are now bearing fruit. 

A tomato plant has sprouted from a crack in a sidewalk on Bruce Avenue in Yonkers. Despite the concrete surrounding, resident Denis Rooney says the plant has thrived with only water dripping from air conditioners above. 

In a testament to tenacity and grit, the plant has already produced two green tomatoes. 

It's unclear whether anyone planted lettuce and fried bacon on the hot sidewalk to complete the meal.
