A Closer Look at the PS 110 Owls
Scouting NY recently celebrated its fifth birthday!! That's five years and over 650 posts dedicated to exploring New York's mysteries and hidden treasures. Plenty more articles to post coming soon, but this is the the one time of the year when I politely ask, with hat in hand:

Finally, looking back at the three usual vantage points I have of the owls (driving, biking, subway):
