East Ninth Street smells like manure this morning


Just between Avenue A and First. Did a manure spreader jack-knife here last night?

Looks like hopper juice, the liquid that gets squeezed out of the trucks that pick up restaurant garbage. A combination of all things animal and vegetable, rotted to a turn and crushed in to a slurry of stench.

@Anon 11:00 - a waste management friend of mine once told me of one of his employees who had the misfortune of getting a squirt of that hopper juice in his MOUTH when picking up some Chinatown trash. I still barf every time I think about it.

"Hopper Juice " was called "Street Soup" in the Brooklyn of my youth.

The weird thing is; am i wrong, or was it only that one block?? Did the offending truck just vanish once it reached the end of that block?

There has been a problem with stagnant water on this part of the block for years. Ever since Con Ed rewired the block after the blackout a few years back liquids just sit there and fester. Bad road design.
