Turd Troubles from NYPD Mounted Unit Continue
Despite the deluge of attention from the New York Post and local blogosphere, it would appear that the NYPD mounted unit is still causing turd troubles for Lower East Side residents. Two specific offenses this past weekend. Orchard Street awoke Saturday morning to a dried-out pile of horseshit in the middle of the roadway, in plain sight for Tenement tourists to view. Meanwhile, further north on Ludlow’s liquor alley, a substantial chunk of curb below Stanton was soiled.

After the Post broke the story two weeks ago, the issue reached the top of the food chain, so to speak. Mayor Bloomberg said he was “not unsympathetic” to the plight of those affected and would seek a solution. The Department of Sanitation even got involved, but no results just yet. We’re not holding our breath, but are pinching our noses.
