Here are some photos showing how my wonderful neighbors at 181 greenpoint avenue are helping to beautify Greenpoint (if you’re a rat).

YUCK. Do they just toss out the garbage like that or is someone rummaging through it? In any case it sucks.


P.S.: Nice Fedders boxes! Maybe I should swing by when the garbage is particularly “festive” and run it on Fedders Friday!

They just toss it out like that. They finally got a DSNY ticket taped to their door; the trash and ticket are still there, worse, days later. I swear the pile has doubled.

Yes SIR. That D.O.S. citation has seriously motivated the citizens of this building (and block for that matter) to dispose of their garbage properly!

  2. I am embarrassed to say that this is my building. In my neighbors and I’s defense this a build-up of two weeks worth of garbage and normally does not look like this. We have no on-site super and our management company is responsible for sending guys out to sort and bag and put the trash on the curb for collection. For whatever reason this didn’t get done for the past two weeks though numerous complaints to the landlord were made. I’m also pretty sure the trash has been pick through by scavengers and I don’t mean the rats.

    As of this morning it has been cleaned up, thankfully. And hopefully wont happen again.
