Note the “teepee” in the background. ┬áThese were not indigenous to the region “back in the day”. There were no “buffalo” in New York. I suppose the gesture (raising awareness about Native Americans?) is a nice enough one— but why not do so in a geographically, historically relevant manner?

P.S.: To my knowledge this piece of feral furniture has graced this sidewalk for at least 55 days.
