Squirrels chomping acorns on New York buildings

Not real live squirrels but the kind this blog really gets a kick out of, the ornamental ones decorating offices and apartment towers.

Like this cute critter above, surrounded by leaves and branches, from the former circa-1867 Kings County Savings Bank headquarters just over the Williamsburg Bridge.

Considering how many squirrels live and thrive in city parks and backyards it’s a surprise that they get so little play from architects and designers.

You’ll find many more owls, lions, beavers and even turtles, hares, and insects than squirrel motifs.

On the right is a bushy-tailed guy stuffing his face with an acorn. He adorns an office building on Park Avenue on the Upper East Side.
