New York Shitty Pay Phone Du Jour: 10 Days Later
Filed under: Chinatown, Chinatown Manhattan, Dung of the Day, Lower East Side, Lower East Side Manhattan, Urban Artifact
Some of you might recall that yours truly documented a rather magnificent (if utterly revolting) public pay phone on the Bowery recently. Today, since I happened to be in Manhattan I decided to swing back by and see how things were shaping up.
New York Shitty Analysis
- Glass Half Empty: It would appear the poo is still there— or an additional “patron” has paid this impromptu privy a “visit”.
- Glass Half Full: Some attempt at cleaning has been made. In addition, the bottle of Activia would suggest that, perchance, this poopatrator is working on his (her?) irregularity issues— albeit with New Amsterdam peach-flavored Vodka as a chaser.
- What I want to know: What would Jamie Lee Curtis do? This is one hell of a product endorsement opportunity if you ask me.
Any merry hooligans out there care to testify on this public pay phone’s behalf? Sadly (and ironically), it cannot speak for itself.
