The Eagles of Pennsylvania Station

One of the 3 eagles that adorned the former Pennsylvania Station, and that are now still to be found in New york. There used to be 22 of them decorating the famous train station before it got replaced in the 1960s by an ignoble rat hole, the current Penn Station. Now there are only 14 of them left, scattered a bit all over the East coast. The others probably got dumped onto a Jersey landfill somewhere.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
