Yesterday & Today

A Hawk's eye view

On July 7th, there was a short posting and photograph on the "Gothamist" entitled "Fine Feathered Visitor". From his apartment on Prospect Park West, Spencer photographed one of the pair of young Red-tailed Hawks that I've written about who frequent the north end of the park. The background of the image is a great perspective of Grand Army Plaza.

During a search on an unrelated subject I came across a photograph of nearly the same point of view. Actually, it is likely from the same building as their are only three tall buildings on Prospect Park West near Grand Army Plaza. Only one is that close to the plaza. The photo was taken in 1934.
