Peacock gets Memorial

At a Stanton Island Burger King on the morning of June 28, a Peacock happened to wonder into the parking lot. The employees were quite impressed by the magnificent bird and took bread to feed him, then it happened, a homeless man who was a schizophrenic ran into the lot and killed the beautiful bird. This inspired a former Industrial Arts teacher to create a replica of bird which will be on display at the store sometime in September, the former Arts teacher said that it just flowed in his hands, it is a beautiful example of my craftsmanship. The plague reads; “Memorial to Burger King Peacock. Made and Donated by PRHS [Port Richmond High School] I.A. Retired Teacher CHARLES JOHNSON.” It doesn’t have a date. “I forgot that,” Johnson said.
