Urban Artifact: (at a loss for a title)

Filed under: 11220, Sunset Park, Sunset Park Brooklyn, Urban Artifact, WTF 

Now that the truly harsh wintry weather is behind us (fingers crossed), a great deal urban detritus has been unearthed from the receding snow. In my observation it has been mostly dog shit, cigarette butts (LOTS of cigarette butts), rotten food and empty liquor bottles. Vodka mostly. While certainly not pleasant to look at (much less smell), is this really surprising? No, it is not. We have simply been faced with a record of exactly how much trash is tossed and/or accumulates on our streets and sidewalks over sustained period of time. It isn’t pretty— but a head-scratcher this mostly decidedly is not.

Today— the weather being amenable and sporting a brand new pair of walking shoes— I opted to take a walk around Sunset Park. Upon exiting the subway I was promptly greeted by my first “street find”. It too, is not pretty— but a “head scratcher” it most decidedly is.

A dead chicken inside a cheerfully pink box of Pampers Pull-ups. Note how they coordinate with my new sneaks! There was also a quarter in there. I opted (for reasons which methinks are obvious) to leave both be.

The deceased chicken had a companion in the manner of a(n also) deceased pigeon.

How/why this came to be I honestly do not know. I do not think I want to know. Nonetheless, here it is for posterity.

Taken today, March 8th 2015. While I am on the subject (this being the Crosstown Local and spring), methinks I spotted the Easter Bunny availing himself of the G train today. Or is it Eeyore? I’ll let you, gentle readers, make the call.
