Last Friday, about a half hour after sunset, I caught Christo hunting in Tompkins Square for a late supper.
People were totally oblivious to him lurking in the dark near 7th Street and Avenue A.
After about five minutes, he dove down to catch a rat behind a bench.
You can just make out the rat in his right talon.
I have to post a photo every time of any hawk that flies past the Joe Strummer mural...the rat still clings to a leaf.
This guy looked up when the rat screamed as it sailed past him.
And it kept on screaming...
...all the way over to a tree near the St Mark's entrance, where dinner was served.
