They’re Watching You: The Fishes of Wall Street
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:
If you’re a fan of Scouting NY and have enjoyed my work over the past year, would you consider making a donation to help me make my first movie? If you think I do a good job with my site, all I can say is that I’ve been working a thousand times as hard on my movie, and literally every penny counts. And you even get a special Scouting NY sticker/magnet as a thank-you gift! Click here to donate!
I love that thousands of New Yorkers go about their business every day unaware of the countless eyes watching from the skies. Case in point: this building I noticed while scouting a rooftop near Wall Street:
They’re virtually impossible to see from the street, but lining the top floor is a row of fish.
Maybe they act as some sort of drainage for the balcony, or maybe they were just installed as decoration…But for whose benefit?
As a side note, I’d love to know if that top floor is a private apartment; that 360° balcony view looks pretty damn amazing.
It's fundraising week on Scouting NY, and if you liked the post you just read, would you consider making a donation to help me make my first movie? The goal is $30,000, and already, 1,194 generous readers have donated $25,541.00. Just $5 or $10 can make a difference - AND you get a snazzy Scouting NY sticker or magnet as a Thank-You gift!
