Tourists

A couple of visitors passed through Tompkins Square this last weekend.

This Peregrine falcon made a few circles over Avenue A before crossing the park and heading for the East River.

And this juvenile Cooper's hawk was just chilling on the south side of the park until Christo chased it away.
