Made this little project in six evenings for a class.
anecdote #1 In the 90's a truck full of tropical Quaker Parrots was en route to the Bronx Zoo. As the story goes, it took a nose dive on Hutchinson River Pkwy and released it's captives into the New York air. Nobody expected the little green babies to survive, but they battled the harsh winter and flocks of them still live in the stadium pole lights of the Bronx today.
anecdote #2 There's a sign off the side of the John F. Kennedy bridge that I'd pass on my bus route from the city back to Throgs Neck. I always found it rather eerie. Those neon red letters up against the evening sky with its unwanted yet prime advertising space. somethin spooky.
