Liquor Bottle Graveyard on Delancey
Three months ago, a substantial section of sidewalk outside Olympic Restaurant on Delancey collapsed into the subway station. The hole was pretty menacing, and quickly attracted the attention of local law enforcement. The area was cordoned, and the greasy spoon closed. Transit workers constructed a semi-permanent perimeter fence to maintain some semblance of safety.
In the interim, however, this boxed-in space has become a depositing ground for empties. Makes sense, given the proximity to the Jade Fountain liquor store. Anyway, take a gander over the plywood threshold. Amidst the shards of shattered glass and trash are dozens of spent liquor shooters and flask-sized containers. And drink of choice seems to be the gagworthy Georgi Vodka.
It’s a veritable liquor bottle graveyard. Quite an impressive sight, actually!
