Minefields of Poo
Dog poop is a big, smooshy problem in this city. It's simply everywhere, though especially on 22nd street between 5th and 6th, which is a veritable minefield of turds (and where my office is). See, if you live in the giant apartment building on the corner of 6th and 23rd and you take your dog for a walk on busy 23rd everyone will see it poop and you have to clean it up. But, clever residents have figured out if you walk the dog on nearly deserted 22nd St. you can let your dog poop up a storm and there is nary a person to yell at you for not scooping it up. Well, today was the cherry on the poop sundae because there were piles of road apples all over 22nd. I can only assume it was from mounted police, but there is nothing there that requires mounted police! Unless, the Home Depot loading dock becomes a rave at night, which I don't think it does.
