Meet Paul, Washington Square Park's Longtime "Birdman"

Paul the "Birdman", is a well-known figure in Washington Square Park, feeding and interacting with the pigeons there for many years.

In this short video shot back in 2014 by photographer Mindia Midelashvili, learn more about paul and what makes him do what he does.

Two girls brought hot coffee for him, he was so pleased-Come on, why I deserve this, guys- he said, but hot drink warmed his hands. …And that’s just how it is. Paul gives his unconditional love to pigeons and pigeons spread this emotion all over New York City.
