HARLEM, Manhattan – A white-tailed deer now calling Harlem home was seen taking a late night stroll and making friends with human neighbors.

PIX11 caught video of the playful fawn inside the Polo Grounds Towers housing development overnight Thursday as residents tried to pet it. The deer appeared to be comfortable around them.

The buck, who only has a single antler, was spotted earlier this week in different parts of the neighborhood, mostly in Jackie Robinson Park, located between 145th and 155th streets.
