Sad Helicopters – RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman

Yesterday I was tweeting about all the helicopters in the sky and everyone said it must be for the Superbowl. This afternoon, I came up out of the subway and once again the sky in my neighborhood was buzzing. It wasn’t the Superbowl this time I learned, sadly. Philip Seymour Hoffman (who lived nearby) has died.

Right now his block is filled with police, news people, friends and neighbors.
