pigeon love

by Grace Bonney

I’m indulging in a NYC moment this morning. It’s hard to avoid pigeons in the city, no matter what borough you call home. They’re everywhere and tend to hover over you at the most inopportune time. While I spend most of my time trying to decide whether to fear them (please don’t poop on me!) or embrace them, this morning I’m settling on embrace. I mean, when pigeons are immortalized in such a cute knitted toy, it’s hard not to love them. It’s not their fault that they’ve become the mascot for dirty birds everywhere.
