Down on Grand Street, it’s always a dough day afternoon for the indigenous wildlife…

As we’ve previously chronicled, the sloppy dumping methods of Doughnut Plant consistently incites a feeding frenzy with both pigeons (daytime) and rats (nighttime). This flock was busy pecking the sweet nourishment, providing fodder for all us photographers.

This method of trashing the unwanted dough has attracted the ire of neighbors who don’t want more vermin in the vicinity. One reader went so far as to alert the Department of Sanitation but hasn’t heard a response. We reached out to the Doughnut Plant for comment on whether its disposal methods would change at all, but received no comment so far. Meanwhile, status quo on premise.

In other Doughnut Plant news, the company is on the precipice of opening its enormous new production facility in Long Island City.
