Thursday Challenge—"unusual (#2)"

The canopy over the entrance to the Graybar Building
is supported by "hawsers" (a tribute to NYC's
standing as a seaport).  They went a step further and
added rat guards (just as a real ship would have)
and rats trying to get past them.  The circular designs
at the top, where the supports meet the building, 
feature more rats—supposedly these represent the ones that
did manage to get aboard.  Creepy but creative!

  1. The rats make a great detail on this building. Great eye finding them.

  2. Fascinating. I wonder how many pass and notice?
