RoosterIn the chicken vein, there are roosters keeping Harlem residents awake with their crowing from 4AM well into the morning. NY1 called the Health Department and was told "the responsibility lies with the Department of Housing, Preservation and Development since the lot where the roosters roam is city-owned. The HPD told [NY1] it had first been trying to find out who owns the roosters. But now because of this story, HPD had Animal Control remove them." Maybe Andrew Weis needs to get NY1 to do his work for him.

The Rooster is an animal in the Chinese zodiac. David Sedaris has a very funny chapter about his brother who refers to himself as the Rooster in Me Talk Pretty One Day.

Earlier, Gothamist posted about the status of chickens in New York City to much debate.
