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.

  2. We don’t have respect at Manhattan & Calyer; however, our r’SPEK overflows like corner trash cans
