SOL Tuesday: New York City Wildlife

            I was all over the city today, taking the subway six times. On one trip, as I was walking up the stairs from the platform at West 4th Street, something flitted by my peripheral vision. I looked back. Yes, it was a gray mouse, running downstairs. I think it was a mouse. It didn’t look big enough to be a rat, although I could see it from the top of the steps, so maybe it was bigger than I think.
            “New York wildlife,” I said to the young woman behind me.
            “It startled me,” she replied. She must be new to the city.

  1. Not my favorite wildlife! We have our share of rats (due to extensive ground cover), but I'm always startled when I see one.
