Trash is a Problem: 57th Street

Yes, don’t we all know that trash is a problem especially in New York? Here is a great solution to the problem – get rid of the trash cans! That seems to be what the ‘pilot study’ found. Don’t believe me? Check out this poster on the subway station on 57th street. This is what the poster reads:

Trash is a problem.
Be part of the solution.

  • Trash attracts rodents.
  • No trash cans means no food for rodents.
  • We’re removing the trash cans at this station as part of a six month pilot study.
  • Please take your trash with you.

That’s smart and makes total sense. Drunken driving kills people, so let’s ban alcohol and remove cars from the street as part of a pilot study on my street. Sure.

Of course, as with anything New York, the posters cannot remain there without someone expressing their comment. And what does it say in the end? “Stupidest Idea Ever!”  As only New Yorkers would!
