Measure the Storefront: One Palm Tree Long

Different objects have been used to attempt to measure the Storefront for Art and Architecture, the notorious gallery in New York city: a slice of pizza, a party hat, a jamón, a saw. Yet, the length of the Storefront gallery space equals exactly the maximum height of an average palm tree, when measured according to American national standards (overall height is the perpendicular height from the ground to the top of the arc made by the uppermost arching frond). To show the relationship between both objects (that is, to measure them) the palm tree has to be eased into Storefront.
