Co-op City power plant

November 15th, 2012



When an apartment complex has 55,000 residents, I guess it makes sense for it to have its own power supply. After major renovations a few years ago, this facility became NYC's first trigeneration plant.

Winged Victory

November 15th, 2012



We'll get a much closer look at the towering Bronx Victory Memorial in Pelham Bay Park sometime in the future, but here it is from afar.

Day 321

Hawk on the prowl

November 15th, 2012



I'm not certain of this, because I was pretty far away, but I believe there is a wild parrot nest at the top of that light pole (located where I-95 cuts through Pelham Bay Park), and that hawk was, to no avail, checking the nest for tasty morsels. You can see what looks like a parrot nest in a larger version of this photo, and I could hear some raucous, parrot-like squawking in the area. Perhaps some of the birds resettled here after their homes at the park's nearby ball fields were removed during renovations a couple of years ago.

Day 321

Checking in

November 15th, 2012



Here we are, back at that dump of a stable on Pelham Parkway that was largely torn down a few years ago when it was discovered to have been illegally built on DOT property. Even though the building has been declared unfit for human occupation, there is still, last I heard, one poor horse living inside.
