I encountered this critter near the southern end of Battery Park City, so I can't help but wonder if it's a descendent of the one I met back in the 1970s and wrote about here (somehow, my typo on "immigrant" made it through the Times's vaunted copy editing).
Anyway, this one seemed more self-sufficient. Have supply-side economic policies had a salutary effect on the squirrel community?
