From The New York Shitty Photo Pool, Part II: Doll Parts

After yesterday’s delightful offering of Chuckie’s head impaled on a car antenna outside our world-famous waste treatment facility I feel compelled to share some more poppet goodness from the New York Shitty photo pool. Without further ado, here they are.

Piked in Bushwick by Entropymedia.

Barbies in the buff, Sunset Park style, by Carnade.

Fucked up beyond all recognition on Houston Street as spied by Bitchcakes.

And last— but hardly least— a little something from the Garden Spot shot by yours truly.

Over the years I have posted a great many fliers soliciting the return of one thing or another. Most of them featured pets such as cats or dogs. One even offered a $100 reward for a pigeon. Now, thanks to a man named Dave, we can add a rubber ducky to the list. Nice.

What really struck me about this photo (which was taken by Steven R. Hazlett and hails from Washington Heights) is how the newspaper dispenser is pressed into service as a bench. This is a far preferable alternative use for these occupiers of public space/trash magnets than what I found on Berry Street today.

Melissa (who sent me the above find) writes:

I found this on the floor at a train station somewhere in Manhattan. I took it home, it is now taped to my wall.

I want to take a moment to thank Melissa for forwarding me this choice item. It made my day!

Update, 7:12 p.m.: I have just received some additional material from Melissa.

She writes:

Credit where credit is due. I didn’t realize the bottom was cut off in the picture.

Credit given!
