I Kid You Not: It's Going to Be a Goat Morning
Move over Summer Solstice. Hang on Manhattanhenge. Today is the launch of Goatham! And it all starts at 11 a.m. in Riverside Park at the level of W. 120th Street.
The plan? From the official website: "Riverside Park will host a herd of goats starting today, May 21, 2019. They will roam a two-acre area — within a fenced enclosure — located between approximately 119th to 125th Streets, feasting all the while.
Throughout the season, the goats will continuously consume the weeds all the way down to the roots, which stunts the plants’ normal growth trajectory by making them start all over — only to be eaten again. After a few months, the plants’ ability to grow will have been weakened, and perhaps eliminated altogether."
What could possibly be baaaad? It isn't nanny of my business, but it's a bleating shame it didn't happen sooner.
