1. Martin the NYPD Kitten

In December 2016, a women left a six-month-old tabby (now dubbed Martin) at the precinct on West 8th Street and Surf Avenue. Swayed by the kitten’s irresistible charm, Brooklyn NYPD cops decided to adopt him as the police station house mascot and pet. He’s named after Officer Martin D. Costanza, who avidly petitioned to keep him.

Today, Martin lives a comfortable life at Coney Island’s 60th precinct, where he’s said to spend his days “hunting mice, nibbling turkey sandwich scraps and lounging on desktops.”
