NYPD Horse Shit in Hell Square Keeps Piling Up

Well dressed for shit
Shit outta luck.
The past four years, residents of Hell Square (and one block below Delancey) have been categorically dumped on. Quite literally. The mounds of manure from the weekend horse patrols are relentless. It’s a near 100% guarantee that the neighborhood will wake up Saturday and Sunday mornings to a heaping pile. That’s in addition to the smell of piss, both of the human and horse variety.
Moreover, it seems the horses know exactly where to unload, as piles generally appear in roughly the same locations week to week.
The equestrian brigade started back in January 2011 as part of the 7th Precinct sweep of nightlife. Their presence is now permanent. To date, no one really claims responsibility for the cleanup. Not the cops; not the Department of Sanitation; not the Lower East Side BID. Also, 311 proves rather useless in reporting the shit.
We pose the same question – shouldn’t the officers themselves be required to shovel or at least employ turd bags for disposal?
