It’s that time of year again. I was coming home from work and saw that they were testing the Tribute in Light. It’s beautiful, but I would like to retire this installation because it confuses migrating birds, trapping them in the light. It didn’t seem as bright as in the past. Maybe they’re trying a lower illumination to see if that lessens its effect on birds.
I've written six non-fiction books, the most recent is Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York.View all posts by Stacy Horn →
