Citizen journalist David Byrne reveals Grand Army Plaza stuffed with puppets

You may ask yourself, if David Byrne had a blog, what would he blog about?

Well, sometimes the rock legend breaks news:


Drummer Kenny Wollesen revealed this morning at breakfast that the “arc de triomphe” at Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn is hollow, and it houses the New York puppet lending library! The arch is filled with puppets! In fact, a spiral staircase winds up and the walls are filled with them, many life-sized, categorized by type, one of which is insects.
His story checks out.

Take that, established media!
