Happy New Year! Now
Please Clean Up Your Crap
The bars and clubs along North 6th Street in Williamsburg had a big night Wednesday - if the quantity of champagne and beer bottles, party hats and vomit strewn up and down the block between Kent Avenue and Wythe Friday morning is any indication.
We've lived on the block for four years now, so we're used to ankle-deep trash. But this morning, returning from a couple of days in DUMBO, we felt like a parent returning home early from vacation to discover our teenage son had thrashed the house with an all-night party, and slept off the next day in jail instead of cleaning up. As if to say 'it isn't a party until something gets broke', it even appears the ATM in front of Public Assembly was stolen.
We know Thursday was a holiday, but now its Friday...so PLEASE, North 6th merchants and residents, get it together and clean up your shit!
Update: As of 10:45 am, Music Hall had cleaned up their sidewalk, and Public Assembly had a Sanitation Department ticket on their door for leaving the dumpster (shown above) in the middle of the sidewalk. The vomit near Sea was making a nice snack for pigeons, and the trash down near Kent Avenue was swirling in little dust devils that appeared to be signalling the end is nigh...
