Here are stock images of the Union County Courthouse Tower in Elizabeth, NJ:  

https://www.emporis.com/buildings/123474/union-county-courthouse-tower-building-elizabeth-nj-usa

The igloo is on the left side, SW??? corner?  two levels down from the top.  There are lower buildings all around the area and a few parking garages.  Streets are narrow and most vehicles are court and police vans.  People seem to know about the falcons.  My lens was too long to get most of the building.

Interesting. It resembles "home" for Cadence.

From the Union County Courthouse Falcon News

A pair first attempted to build a nest on the roof of the County Courthouse in 2005, but windy conditions were an obstacle. In 2006 County workers installed a repurposed dog house to provide a wind shield, acting on the guidance of wildlife experts with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Every year until 2015, the same nesting pair has raised chicks in the doghouse since then.

Fledge videos by Betty Ann Kelly. She said that around 4:20, the males gathered around and all took off. The 2nd video is of the female...hope she’s ok! She says Cadence showed “tough love”, when her daughter “fledged”...Beauty would have been right after her!  scared blue

Cadence can see her, though, so she knows she's okay.

I got down to Elizabeth, NJ today.  At first I thought I saw two juvies flying three blocks north of the courthouse tower, but when looking at my photos, it was Cadence and Allan.  I did not see any of the youngsters, but I thought I heard them to the west of the tower after Allan went into a stoop in that direction much later.  Of course it was nap time (11:00-1:00).  I did get more of a chance to check out the territory and finally found the roof of the garage right next to the tower.  It has a perfect 360 degree view from 8 floors up but no shade.  Cadence flew onto the antenna about 5 minutes after I arrived and saw the pair kiting above me.  About a half hour later Allan flew to the other antenna.  They remained perched there for about 45 min when Cadence went into a stoop to the east and crossed my path while I was driving around the courthouse (naturally).  Allan then left to east and apparently awakened the kids.  Cadence then flew off to the north right over my head as I was on the parking garage roof but I couldn't get her in focus.  I'm posting the photos I have of the pair and the surrounding area.

I found the pigeon buffet right next to the courthouse.  And I found the loathsome canal right next to the tower.  The photos show the cemetery and church steeple west of their scrape.  Amtrak passes on the east side.  North and south of the scrape are low buildings that are perfect for fledglings to hone their skills.  I would think an aerial view resembles Rochester.

You would see that. I didn’t notice it.  😩
