Trashquake

Something called "Fashion Now! Youthquake" camped out on Avenue A between Seventh Street and Sixth Street today. There were two buses and a truck or two. Not much was going on the times that I passed by...



After the group left, though, the remnants from their catering ended up on the sidewalk and street.



Also, thanks to RatherBeBiking in the comments...As he noted: "Well, not only was the … ‘quake… responsible for a load of trash, their VIPs TLC hires blocked up the bike lane, one of them taking up part of the pedestrian crosswalk, bike box, AND bike lane on Avenue a for more than a few minutes."

The comfort of those involved in this project is apparently also more important than the safety of cyclists trying to use the bike lane on Avenue A : http://blog.cyclosity.com/?p=832

I wasn't sure what this was all about. When I walked past the 7th and B newspaper boxes around 1:30 I saw they had put fake snow everywhere and dotted it with women's shoes. Later, after all the trucks had left, I saw they had left food on the curb which the "Crusties" from Tompkins were gobbling up and fighting over.
