A little tree on a West New York sidewalk is bringing crowds of people to look at it. Crowds so large police have had to set up barricades around the tree so no one destroys it.

Reason: There’s a nebulous spot on the tree that locals believe looks like the Virgin Mary.

Of course.

“As soon as I got here, I felt this rush when I saw it, this rush from my body,” said Barbara Questel of West New York. “It’s such an amazing feeling.”

If you ask me it looks more like a hot dog in a bun.
