More Horse Shit for Orchard Street

Posted on: June 6th, 2011 at 6:18 am by

The lovely aroma of horse shit and stale beer is the new Sunday morning wake-up call here on the Lower East Side.  Early morning excursions in the general orbit of Hell Square usually require a keen eye and adept dodging skills, otherwise it’s “shitfoot” for the rest of the day.  Since the Seventh Precinct began their neighborhood-wide crackdown on nightlife back in early March, the mounted police units have been deployed in full force.  Most bar-goers tend to ignore their presence, while others try to provoke with shirtless antics.

In any event, would it be so hard for the NYPD to invest in shit bags for their steeds?  Heaping piles, such as this one spotted on Orchard Street, are becoming ever so prevalent around here.
