Culture on the Cheap
Spotted On Manhattan Avenue: Raccoon On The Run
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
This afternoon Manhattan Avenue had some added excitement in the way of a raccoon which had found his (?) way onto the fire escape above (ironically/amusingly enough) Pets On The Run. Was he or she a bit peckish and opted to get a little take-out? Quite possibly. Regardless, a raccoon (a nocturnal creature by habit) being at large during the day, much less in such a populated area, is not a good sign. Be mindful of your windows, north’ Point pet owners. These critters do NOT mix well with cats!
UPDATE, 5:00 p.m.: I have been told by the D. I. Hurson of the 94th Precinct that this fellow/lass has been delivered to Animal Care & Control and apparently our Finest were called to collect two opossums on Frost Street yesterday. Never a dull moment, folks…
