The UES's Trash Mountain

New, 6 comments

While the character of Greenwich Village is being compromised by potentially illegal signage, on the Upper East Side the problem is trash. Broker-blogger Andrew Fine files a photo of the current trash mounds on East 84th Street, which he claims rival the trash that piled up during the garbage strikes of 1968, 1975, and 1981. This time, though, the causes are just Christmas, New Year's, and snow, not striking workers -- though one conspiracy theorist-slash-doorman floats the theory that the sanitation folks spent so much on snow removal they're compensating by cutting back on garbage collection.
