There’s some evidence that the stay-at-home restrictions imposed around the world have led to the reemergence of nature in some areas. On the Upper West Side, it’s too soon to tell, but we got some photos of some creatures enjoying the great outdoors in the neighborhood. Josh Scheiman took the photos below while out walking his dog around Teddy Roosevelt Park. The middle shot shows two raccoons perched right above the parking sign.
“The possum stayed in the tree, at about chest level, the whole time. But it did watch us intently as we walked by it,” he wrote. “Apparently every dog that went by it could smell it (but most didn’t see it) and were growling or barking in its direction.”
