This splendid specimen (which I have learned has since been removed— too bad as it is perfect for enjoying this unseasonably mild weather) hails from Starr Street and Woodward Avenue and comes courtesy of Queens Crap. Very nice!

It’s amazing how those illegal clothing drop off boxes seem to attract illegal dumping…

in more ways than one. Trust me: this smelled worse than it looks (which is pretty darned bad).

Note the “teepee” in the background.  These were not indigenous to the region “back in the day”. There were no “buffalo” in New York. I suppose the gesture (raising awareness about Native Americans?) is a nice enough one— but why not do so in a geographically, historically relevant manner?

BIGBUX

Bottle and Japanese Cucumber

New York Shitty analysis:

    • One shrink-wrapped Japanese cucumber: check
    • I’d say someone had one hell of a Saturday night…

but could we honestly expect anything less from “BIGBUX”?

P.S.: To my knowledge this piece of feral furniture has graced this sidewalk for at least 55 days.
