Found Squirrels: Ancient Playground Squirrels

I found this little dude on the gates of the Ancient Playground by the Metropolitan Museum of Art!

There is a beautiful little iron gate that leads into the Ancient Playground (I think they recently renovated this playground?) and it's based on a few of Aesop's fables. Four little squirrels stand atop the gate, keeping watch over the wee children of the park. Well done, New York City Department of Parks & Recreation!

  1. Yes it was recently renovated. Previously it was all rough and deadly concrete. Yeah..what in the hell were they thinking? It did on the other hand look like step pyramids, which is pretty cool.
