The wild parrots of Brooklyn are something you need to see to believe. Walk down this block, which curves along the perimeter of Brooklyn College’s football field, and you’ll become a believer. Scores of bright green parrots have made Brooklyn their home since the 1970s, and while we’ll always have a soft spot for the New York pigeon, we can’t help but revel in the sight of the native-to-South-America birds swooping down from their perches in the football field’s lights.
