I’ve always loved the bronze birds in the Canal Street A/C/E station. “A Gathering” was created by Walter Martin and Paloma Muñoz.There are some crows on top of the ticket booth, and 174 grackles and “blackbirds” (see my next post for more on this slippery word) perched on the metalwork of the mezzanine level. Most could use a good dusting.
