Today we introduce a new recurring feature, Strange But True, spotlighting Tudor City's more incongruous side.

We begin with something one wouldn't expect to find in the enclave ‒ barbed wire. And yet, here it is, hidden in plain sight, atop the western fence of the South Park.
It's apparently in place to protect the private garden of the 41st Street rowhouse profiled earlier. Along with the Fallout Shelter signs, it lends a groovy Cold War undertone to Tudor City's otherwise Gothic air.
