Sunday's parting shots

A big weekend for discarded furniture with the end-of-the-month move ins and move outs... the above photo was spotted on Ninth Street (thank you Steven!)... and below on 11th Street (thank you Carol from East 5th Street!)
... and Ninth Street at Second Avenue (thank you Doug!) ...

And on a discarded mattress on St. Mark's Place near Second Avenue, someone writes that the Sinaloa Cartel will avenge the death of recently murdered Gambino Crime Boss "Franky Boy" Cali...

Also written on the mattress: "Bed Bugs Are Fun!"

Thanks to @ImPaulGale for the photo...

Today in Urban Etiquette Signs; 'How dare you'

And a reminder not to discard your mattress and box springs over on this part of 11th Street between Avenue B and Avenue C, via @ChrisRyanAction...

As you can see, there are two notes affixed to the discarded property... starting with an effective:

How dare you

And, uh-oh! ...

We have you in [?] camera. It's a violation to put your garbage in private property.

Keep your BED.

24 hours (or so) in the life of a discarded sofa section on 2nd Avenue

We begin yesterday afternoon on Second Avenue and East Seventh Street...

Before heading south a few blocks... presto — new sidewalk cafe!

Then it was back where it started...

And today, the sofa section went south a few blocks again, where its value was certainly raised with the addition of some street art...

... and continued to do what it knows how to do best — provide a comfortable place to sit...
