(NEW YORK POST) — They’re baa-ck.
The Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in NoLIta welcomed this year’s flock of sheep to its hallowed grounds this week. The ewes — named Houston, Prince and Spring — will spend six weeks “lambscaping” the lawn, helping to maintain the centuries-old courtyard while delighting onlookers.
“It’s one of the most anticipated happenings in the neighborhood,” said church administrator Frank Alfieri. “People line up six to seven deep on the sidewalk to see them.”
