Gift Giving: Williamsburg Style

One thing that never ceases to fascinate me about parked bicycles in north Brooklyn is the propensity people have for leaving “gifts” in their baskets. In Greenpoint this usually entails empty fifths of vodka and banana peels. I do not know why this is so, I suppose it is the average Garden Spotter’s idea of a balanced diet.

So needless to say when my husband and I spied this bicycle on Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg yesterday we simply had to see what “present” had been left for its owner. Let’s go in for a closer look, shall we?

Mmm… doggie dumplings!

  2. as someone who used to have a big basket on their bike (i was a deliveryperson) and who got a lot of gifts during that time, this photo utterly terrifies me.

  4. Ugh!! I find weekly gifts of bottles and cans in my bike basket. The worst was finding my basket all bent up one Saturday morning. I concluded that some douche bag either tried to sit in it or pick his girlfriend up and make her sit in it. But I really don’t know what I would do if I found one morning that someone had left me a plastic wrapped turd in my basket.

  6. I suppose I’m quite lucky as my bike basket is a remodeled kitty litter container and have not received any ‘dumplings’! (though I’ve certainly received my share of empty booze bottles for sure)

Tell me what you're thinking...
