For some reason, turkeys are in New York at full force. And by full force, we mean "There are turkeys in New York, period." The Post and NY Times both devote stories to turkeys in the area, especially given this tryptophan loaded week: The Post reports that the Urban Park Rangers are trying to reintroduce (introduce?) turkeys to different city parks; of course, the Post makes its reporter dress as a Pilgrim and chase the Battery Park turkey, Zelda, around. The Times takes a look at the Riverside Park turkey, nicknamed "Giuliani," who has been arousing Thanksgiving dreams in the young and old. Gothamist hasn't seen any turkeys roaming the New York streets yet, probably because we assume any creature outside larger than cat is a cockroach or a rat.
