Clayton’s Corner: Nathan and the New Trash Bins
While those new Lower East Side BID curbside trash bins might be aesthetically pleasing, the Mayor of Upper Orchard Street is not too happy with the addition. Nathan has been parked near the corner of East Houston for the better part of the last decade and keeps a watch on that stretch of real estate. So his opinion truly means something.

Clayton Patterson spoke with Nathan and filed the following report:
Nathan the protector of Orchard street is mad as hell at the new garbage cans the Business Improvement District replaced the old ones with. The new containers weigh so much that Nathan cannot use them to block the street on Sunday which he used to do with the old ones. The new cans make it hard for the bottle collectors to pick through the trash. The old cans can also be used to stick in potholes to save a cars from more street wreckage to their automobile.
