The Flying Monkeys of Burlington

Burlington, Vermont, is home to flying monkey gargoyles on the town's rooftops. Local sculptor Steve Larrabee made the first flying monkey for a waterbed store called The Emerald City in 1976. A second one followed. Through sometimes weird circumstances, the number of flying monkeys in Burlington grew to a half-dozen by 2005. The monkeys have changed locations over the years, but they are always a welcome sight. Read the story of the flying monkeys of Burlington at Kuriositas. Link -via the Presurfer
