Brooklyn boy Mike Tyson, who has been in the media lately (on clips from an upcoming special on one of the streaming services), used to keep pigeons. When I was quite young I remember my father used to keep pigeons in a coop on our roof, and he belonged to some pigeon club/s. Does anyone else remember pigeons and coops on roofs? I think there were specific clubs for, say racing (homing pigeons) and breeding. Does anyone else recall this hobby or side-job? If so, details? (No, I'm not talking about passenger pigeons that went extinct in the early 1900s - I'm old, but not THAT old!)
