[Updated] We do not know what this is on St. Mark's Place


Spotted by @thestarkonline on St. Mark's Place between First Avenue and Avenue A ... Uh... Good lord...

And in the light of day...


A Facebook friend thinks it's a piece of sausage.

Kidney, maybe?

At first glance, I thought it was a kidney. Then I enlarged the photo. I don't really want to be the one that says that looks like a human fetus, but...

I hate to ask this, but what's it smell like? Human kidneys and sausage are quite distinct smelling, no?

Well, that's easy enough...it's...Lady Gaga!

If it's a sausage why is there a rather large puddle of red around it? Those things are THAT juicy.

That's right outside my old apt. So glad I moved.

i'm guessing some kind of pranky street art. when i went by, the "kidney" was gone, but its legs remained. they looked like they were made of clay. and the dried blood didn't look anything like blood.

It's an organic farm-to-table menu item from a soon to open artisanal foodie resto in the EV -- bloody mary infused kidney, drenched in pomegranate molasses, tomato orchard cherry gremolata butter, and lemon blood-red rose, with a side of tomatoes, beets, rhubarb, and truffle oil cranberry vinaigrette. Perfect pairing with a nice chianti.

This really looks like a human cadaver kidney - I used to work in the transplant field. The cardiovascular extensions are the renal aorta and renal artery. Let's see if the NY POST mentions some gruesome find without a kidney...
