PIGEONS are New Yorker’s PETS

This is the BIRD MAN of Washington Square Park……….he is there every day……the pigeons love him.

The BIRD LADY.……..we adore her and she adores the pigeons.

They always hang out with the horses on Central Park South.

The Angel on top of Bethesda Fountain………..is a favorite perch.

BABY PIGEONS.…………we never see them until they reach adulthood……….which happens in only four weeks.

Some of them end up on our menu………then we call them SQUABS.

NYC a Winter Wonderland • Our First December Snow

The view from  my terrace……….foggy but showy……..our first snow.

A wet show..,…………….perfect for making a wet “snow person”.

BETHESDA FOUNTAIN in Central Park

The Bethesda Angel looks her best in the summer……….  her pool  is filled with water lillies.

In 1868, Emma Stibbens was given the commission to design the largest fountain in NYC..  She was the first woman in New York City to receive such a commission.

After lunch at the boat house we strolled over to theBethesda Fountain……and met this sweet couple from Australia………..Jayde and John.  She has been to NYC four times……..this is John’s first visit.

The weather was fantastic.  The geese…….the tulips…..the sketch artists………the “bubble boy”………the brides…….the turtles……….and thousands of tourist……….all enjoying Central Park.
