NYC Mayor Bloomberg pays homage to pigeons

Please click here to see a copy of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's letter to Al Croseri, director of "The Flight". "The Flight" is an homage to the bravery of homing pigeons who saved thousands of lives in combat in the Great World Wars. Their achievements embodied the attributes of service, endurance, loyalty and supreme courage. Here, their memory is evoked by two present-day homing pigeons silently taking flight from the windows of a New York City apartment. The film dissolves to a forgotten past as we relive their ancestors' selfless heroism.

It is important that the legacy of the homing pigeons heroic war efforts be preserved and remembered.

"The Flight--a lovely tribute to the often-overlooked winged heroes of conflicts past."
