An award-winning news site covering the East Village of NYC
I've always wondered what is wrong with people who throw cigarette butts (or anything else, for that matter) out of windows. As if windows are magical portals to a place where trash just ~disappears~! Every so often there will be a new tenant up from me who chucks butts or other trash out the windows so it lands on the fire escape, or I see the same thing happening across the back area in the opposite building, and I'm just like, who ARE you people and how do you not realize that your sh*t actually lands somewhere when you toss it through a window? I swear these are the same yokels who come to NYC for a few years and think the whole place is a dirty playground where anything goes.
It's the same sense of entitlement that bestows smokers with extra break-time during work.
i lived on the first floor on east 7th street. and a used sock was thrown out the window onto my fire escape. by used, i don't mean worn on the foot.
to @10:21: Yeah and I even wonder about those on the street who just toss them onto the sidewalk or curb without tamping them out or stepping on them. They're LIT. It's a small fire and you're letting it roll under a parked car or tossing it down into a basement stairwell or whatever. WTF, why not just step on it?
to @4:05PM - You're making me nostalgic for the 80s EV.
According to New York Penal Code, it's illegal to throw anything out of a window and there is a $400. fine for doing so.
