Winged Monkeys

The winged monkeys on the roof actually represent the winged monkeys of Oz (they used to reside on the top of a futon store called "The Emerald City"). There are two because one disappeared after being snatched, presumably by a UVM student. It was missed so badly a second winged monkey was commissioned, but soon the first monkey reappeared. When the Emerald City store went broke no one wanted to see the monkeys go, so they were moved to the top of the old Union train station, where they reside now.
