Remember the Riverside Hawks? and a PS

Building the Riverside nest last spring

A correspondent whose apartment looks out over Riverside Park, writes:

Dear Marie,

The Riverside Park Red-tailed Hawks have returned to one of their favorite viewing spots. Each bird is sitting on one tower of the Normandie [a landmark apartment house on Riverside Drive and 86th St.] surveying the territory and catching the morning sun. This couple is an inspiring sight and a reminder of what is truly important in this season of campaigning and economic woe.

PS VOLUNTEER now and VOTE on TUESDAY. That's truly important too.

PPS Happy Halloween.
