The community fridge on 9th, duh...
We have a housing crisis in NYC with a lack of housing supply. A shame that an entire block has sat vacant and is now home to a racoon when this could have been much needed housing for the community.
The racoon was chased out by the rats.
Ha! Glad someone got a photo. The raccoon walked right in front of me on Avenue B at the corner of 12th St. last night. It walked right between me and another woman not a foot from either of us. We were both stunned and stopped dead in our tracks as this very large raccoon passed between us and then disappeared under a parked car. It is much bigger looking in person than in the photo. The raccoon ignored us completely and took its time walking by. After we took a moment to recover from our surprise, we chatted about our "wild kingdom" encounter and agreed that the raccoon looked well fed, probably from the many garbage bags in our neighborhood. The East Village is never boring!
Surprisingly enough, they’ve been in the neighborhood for years!! A lot of them were displaced when they tore up the park area over by the east river!! They are smart creatures and there’s plenty for them to survive on in this area.
