Unidentified slimy substance on west St btw eagle and Freeman! Look like fish eggs from a giant newtown creek carp. And that plastic thing in the middle is a salad fork in case you were wondering. Check it out and see if you can figure out what it is.
This afternoon I went headed to West Street to see this phenomenon in person. Sure enough, after a little field-testing they proved to be very gelatinous.
If I had to hazard a guess as to that these things are I’d say they are bath beads. I for one like how someone was even kind enough to leave a spoon so passersby can scoop some up, take them home (or for the more adventurous: the East River or Newtown Creek) and enjoy a nice winter time bath on this dreary day. That’s what I call holiday cheer…
