Vane

IMG_9461This large wind vane on a building on Hanson Place and South Elliot is one of the delights of downtown Brooklyn. It is a sight rapidly being overshadowed by the generic glass towers rising rising around the neighborhood, which make the borough look like Anywheresville.

Three things:
1. This actually does move, which, for a roughly 5′-6′ arrow, is kind of impressive.
2. Why is it slightly bent?
3. I did not have my camera when a Peregrine Falcon, which had been flying around the tower of the Williamsburgh Savings Bank, landed on the rooster.

Here is your correspondent–not, I trust, your corespondent–looking up on the way to a dinner party. peregrine1Keep your eyes on the sky!
