Culture on the Cheap
RESPECT: It’s a Bed-Stuy Thing
As I was walking around Bedford Stuyvesant recently I happened upon a rather compelling dog shit sign. In fact, it was so interesting I took a photograph of it.
A photograph which, as you can see, is woefully out of focus (such is the joy of having a new camera: learning its “quirks”). I for one find the graphics (especially the pensive bespectacled chihuahua) to be a particularly nice touch. Believe it or not, the accompanying copy is just as good— if not better. Here it is:
RESPECT yourself with regard to our streets. Curb your dog if you care about him/her and our neighborhood.
Place trash in trash cans for a better quality of life because you deserve it (a clean block looks nicer, decreases rodents & odor).
You don’t have to move to Park Ave. & Beverly Hills, just live like you do by doing the above and RESPECT will come.
Respect: it’s not just for Beverly Hills anymore.
