NYC Squirrel TARDIS Restored to Proper Dimensions

The TARDIS squirrel house

The wily squirrels of New York City’s Tompkins Square Park apparently knew all too well that a TARDIS is supposed to be bigger on the inside than the outside. They overstuffed their Dr. Who-themed squirrel box so much that the side door pushed out. The Tardis we put up a few years ago is a popular squirrel house, as overstuffing and gnawing on the roof and entrance testifies.

So on an unseasonably warm winter day, brave architect Jeff Cole climbed an enormously tall ladder to tidy up the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space). Jeff also restored it to its proper dimensions. All is right in the universe.
