The city has unveiled its new #KeepNYCTrashFree campaign on Avenue A at St. Mark's Place...
Not sure at the moment who's responsible for this street art ... (and thanks to Christine Champagne for the photo!)
Thanks to the readers who shared the artist's name...

That didn't last long, as Christine noted...
That is priceless. I love the allusion to Chick-Fil-A, that bastion of Christian conservatism, which has no business operating in the Sodom that is New York City - but I guess their profit margin is more important to them than God.
Put up a kickstarter and I will donate $20 to get a few more of these on the streets.
That was the one hope we had for keeping the bros out of our neighborhood; call it a lost opportunity.
Winston Tseng is a god... I want more!
I would like to have seen the person who tore it down. Trump supporters fascinate me, like some odd, horrifying sub-creatures. Come to think of it...
@10:16am, come on over. a group of four of them moved in this month next door. now every night i hear variations on "trump is awesome, bro", "i'm not even gonna vote, fuck that" and "ALEXA! play fox news"
I can't get on board with images explicitly aimed at a segment of the American population. For example what if this character was of a group you identified with or had family and or friend included?
Trust me as (L)liberal New Yorker I am tortured daily and appalled by the words and actions of the president and his Republican enablers but those public figures should be on these posters not those albeit cartoons of misguided groups of citizens.
Do the t-shirts ship to Canada?
And here's how Canadians felt about the availability of "Make Canada Great Again" baseball caps at a nation-wide department store.
WARNING: The comments are rather....uhh, straightforward :>)
so much for coming together as American people
Since when has America ever come together as one people? Its because of the actions of the kind of “misguided people” depicted on this poster that we have not yet achieved even the semblance of national unity:
Native Americans: 90% or 9 million of all Native Americans were killed by white settlers. They finally gained the right to free speech, the right to a jury and protection from unreasonable search and seizure in 1968.
African Americans: Enslaved for 250 years, not given equal rights for another 100 years, and are still incarcerated at 5 times the rate of whites.
Women: Were denied the right to vote for the first 144 years; have only had the right to vote for the past 98 years. And still have not been given equal pay for equal work.
LBGTQ rights still vary by state, and now Trump is attempting to roll back gay marriage and transgender rights by appointing judges who will overturn pro-LBGTQ decisions. Now Trump wants to erase Trasgender people by not allowing them to change their gender identities.
Latinos: Have been illegally deported since the 1840s, lynched and subjected to the same kind of school segregation as African Americans. Over 2 million Mexican-Americans were deported during the Great Depression because many white people thought they were stealing their jobs. Sound familiar?
This poster sums up all of these issues quite eloquently.
The character on those posters fits the stereotype accepted idea of who put Trump in the White House but that group alone does not have the numbers to do it alone. There were way too many Obama voters who bought the slander against Clinton or some other wacky ass reason vote for Trump. Look at the northern states who fell to Trump. My post was to state it is too easy to vilify a group of people for our current problems, this is exactly what the Trump admin and the Republicans are doing by blaming just about everything on certain groups other than themselves and their heinous policies. Call out the elected officials who willingly allowing a dictatorship take over our country and don't waste your time blaming one group of voters when there are many which share that responsibility especially those that did not or never vote.
That wasn't slander against Clinton. She took over and micromanaged the DNC and stole the primary from Bernie. Millions of Black people were so disillusioned with Obama after no improvements in their lives for 8 years that they didn't bother to show up in a lot of states.
People voted for Trump and got hoodwinked. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who voted for Trump and got hoodwinked and still believe his every word.
But it's starting to turn out that voter purges in the red states may have disenfranchised a lot of voters. And it's happening again this year. It's not the Russians, it's seditious, pernicious creeps in the U.S.
I voted for Hillary, but based on fear, which is what she ran on in the final months before November 8. That is not the way to live in a democracy.
