Garbage Curb

high pile of garbage on curb, 22nd Street, Manhattan, NYC


Just another rainy Friday night on 22nd Street in Manhattan (taken about 6:30 PM). This isn't the biggest pile of garbage on a sidewalk I've seen, nor is it the smallest. I guess it's "just right". ;]

Just right considering what??? LOL

At least it's not over 90 degrees and smoldering...

As I was looking at this my first thoughts were "oh my gosh, why do they trash up the streets in beautiful NY?" But then I thought about DT Dallas and I suppose they do the same thing down there late at night because where else are they going to put it. DUH!! It's been awhile since I've been in DT Dallas in the late evening. Oh well....

dutchbitch is right. When I lived in New Orleans people would do that in the middle of the day during the summer. Talk about rancid!

At least it is all in garbage bags. In Haiti they just dump all the garbage in a huge pile and I do mean huge. That bit of garbage would not even compare to a pile of garbage in Haiti.

At least they have the sense to pile it neatly in bags. Nothing like what I've seen around China and Thailand.

Yikes! That is a shit load of garbage! I have seen what bobbie is talking about in the Dominican, they just dump it in a pile on a side of the road a huge frickin' pile!

When I was a kid there was a big garbage strike. The mountains were huge. I always think of that when I see an image like this.
