A discarded can of PBR outside the Bowery Ballroom – how typical!

Pick of the Litter: Dumpster Style

Posted February 5, 2010 at 6:18 am

Apparently, it is possible to discard trash in style. These twin dumpsters at the corner of Bowery and Stanton are sheathed in kitschy flower-themed wallpaper.

What a find!  Unfortunately, that shopping cart just isn’t gonna cut it. Rooftop chimney (?) found at the southwest corner of Orchard and Delancey.

Pick of the Litter: Television Trashed

Posted October 26, 2009 at 6:28 am

It would appear that thrill-seeking hooligans got to this ginormous trashed television before the Department of Sanitation.  Electronic innards were shattered and scattered across the sidewalk near the corner of Eldridge and Stanton Streets.

Go directly to jail. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. Spotted in one of the usual tall trash heaps on West Houston near LaGuardia Place. Just curious, how many of you played with Snake Eyes rules and Free Parking jackpot?

It’s always sad to see old-school audio equipment sitting on a curb waiting for garbage pickup. This set was discarded at the corner of Orchard and Canal Streets.
