New Falcon Chicks (two so far) need Names

This is the tree in front of the apartment, where my parents moved my brother and me nearly 50 years ago. Sometime at the end of June will be half a century.

I love this tree that turns pink for about two weeks before erupting into green leaves. This year it’s less dense because the gardeners trimmed lower branches.

What does this have to do with the bridge? Nothing. It’s a pretty tree and deserved recognition. However, high on the Tappan Zee Bridge nest box are new falcon chicks, and they need names.

Two-way traffic will shift onto one of the immense new 3.1-mile spans, giving motorists a better view of work on the eastbound span.

Stay cable installation for the westbound span is complete; one-third (32) for the eastbound span are attached to their respective towers and tensioned to structural steel.

Crews are installing concrete noise barrier panels along the northbound Thruway in South Nyack this week and installing transparent acrylite noise barriers on the Rockland approach on the soon-to-open westbound span, readying it for motorists.

Watch for update with details in this Thursday’s Rockland County Times.

I’d like to know what you think.
