Has anyone seen the hawk of 84th street? Yvonne wrote in to tell us it’s back. “A red tailed hawk has reappeared on the 84th street fire escape….I have binoculars but can only see one adult….I know that the apartment dwellers very reluctantly discarded all the nesting materials from the fire escape at the end of season 2014, because they decided that the hawks were taking up too much of their time and space over many years…but at least one is back!”
The Big Apple Circus is struggling and now turning to online fundraising. “In the coming days, the Big Apple Circus will embark on an online crowdfunding campaign in an effort to raise the funds necessary to stage its 39th season on the Upper West Side in December. Leasing the space in Damrosch Park, behind Lincoln Center, costs $500,000. It takes approximately another $11.5 million to produce the circus each year. If it dissolves, mothers and fathers and children and grandparents will mourn it. The circus will join a long list of institutions in New York that reverence alone could not sustain.”

She led the pregame shout — “To the Revolution!” — and it was time to play ball.”
