Ursa Major On Joralemon Street, Brooklyn Heights

This wire-frame bear on a window ledge on Joralemon Street reminded us of Ursa Major, the constellation which means Great Bear.

From Wikipedia: Ursa Major is dominated by the widely recognized Big Dipper, or Plough, which is a useful pointer toward north, and which has mythological significance in numerous world cultures.

We'd like to point out this bear's nose is pointing due north.
