Riley, a visitor from Massachusetts, was one of seven children who discovered an extremely friendly baby squirrel at an entrance to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade on Friday. After taking turns petting the little critter, the children returned the squirrel to the garden area – only to be surprised when it jumped back into their hands. Other kids taking a turn at holding the squirrel were Hannah, Olivia, Jaxsen, Oliver, Alex and Emilia.
