Doves get posh new digs
Some of the "wedding" doves left stranded in a New York City park must be loving their new digs: a historic mansion on Manhattan's Upper East Side.
The albino ringneck doves -- apparently released during a wedding -- were among dozens found clinging to life in Flushing Meadow Park in Queens.
Four now perch -- seemingly content -- amid elegant furnishings at the Carlton Hobbs antique dealership in the Vanderbilt Mansion.
About 22 rescued doves are now recovering around the city, bound eventually for an upstate farm.
