This tree appears to be a Ginkgo.
Location: between 60th Street and Bergenline Avenue in West New York, New Jersey.

NYTimes: -With all the commotion, Mr. Roque proposed transplanting the 20-foot tree with fan-shaped leaves to a nearby park. In response, members of a group standing vigil around the tree said they had gathered 5,000 signatures on a petition demanding that the tree stay put. Mr. Roque said he would appoint a commission this week to discuss how to proceed. -
