^ Utopia is the place where there are unicorns. Are there unicorns at the end of Utopia Parkway?

Who knows what they're hiding in Queens. I wouldn't be all that suprised.

The north end of Utopia Parkway is in Beechhurst; the south end, in Jamaica Estates. The residents at both ends can afford to buy white horses and pay for cosmetic horn implants. So the answer is, I don't know if those equine creatures romping around are real unicorns.

Have you seen the unicorn horn at the Cloisters?

I saw the Unicorn Tapestries, and the woven unicorn had a horn, (natch). I felt sorry for the unicorn because it was being hunted by barbarians with spears.

But just a horn, mounted as a sculpture, not on a tapestry?

:confused:

Yeah, it's in the same room. (It's really from a narwahl.)

The horn happened to not be present when I was there. I thought that the Cloisters would have at least one online image of it, but none was to be found. In a general online search, I saw a hoard of whales with tusks that looked like swords...

But it's important that a romantic like you keep on believing in the horn. Your fanciful dreams are what spark your magnificent creativity and productivity.

Check out the first link.

Maybe they had removed it for cleaning when you were there.

It's from a narwhal. The narwhal lived in the Middle Ages. He provided proof of unicorns' existence.

Btw, I don't make up nearly as much as you think. ;) :)

Note: The above ^^^ unicorn posts were originally an offshoot, (so to speak), of Ablarc's topic, Utopia in Queens (http://wirednewyork.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13914) .

Ablarc, please let me know if you'd like this retitled.

^ Fine as is. Hasn't much substance, has it? Sort of a unicorn.

^ Didn't read the article, and it's not my proof. My proof is that I call it to my companions' attention when I visit and it gets a rise out of them. :)

That is so beautiful. A unicorn that flashes to a disco beat.

The wiccans have, with out a doubt, the coolest holiday mascot.

It puts baby Jesus to shame!
