Some happy campers on 10th Street now as NYPD relocates RV

The camper that had been parked on 10th Street east of First Avenue is no longer on the block. 

Updated 11:30 a.m. 

The NYPD explains what happened in a tweet... As noted here, some unhappy residents who lived nearby painted messages outside (and on) the camper late last week with directives such as "move" ... "leave" ... and "Camper time to go."

Those messages remain on the sidewalk.

A message for the camper on 10th Street

Photos by Steven 

You've likely noticed the camper that has been parked on 10th Street just east of First Avenue.

Apparently, people who live nearby have had about enough of the camper. Some messages have arrived outside (H/T simcitymayor!) ...
... and on the camper itself...

You've likely seen an array of letters posted around the East Village... the top one (thanks Stacie Joy!) is taped to the bear outside Josie's on Sixth Street between Avenue A and Avenue B... the one below (thanks Robert Miner!) is outside Ninth Street Espresso at Avenue C... (you may click on the images for more detail)... 
There are other variations, like one outside Mast on Avenue A and another near Juicy Lucy the next block up the Avenue. Some namecheck East Village businesses and at least one is signed by EVQ (East Village Queen).

As seen on Second Avenue between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place... someone amended the work zone sign to read — "Cuomo Zone Ahead. Share Them Broads."

Five women have now accused the governor of inappropriate sexual conduct. Attorney General Letitia James is now investigating the sexual harassment allegations.

A message for Short Stories

Short Stories is currently on a winter hiatus here on the Bowery between Third Street and Fourth Street.

And perhaps no one is around to mind the store on a full-time basis... as such, a neighbor left a sign on the door asking the bar-restaurant to clean up its curbside dining space...
... seen worse, but...
This has been a common complaint among some residents when a bar or restaurant temporarily closes... who's taking care of the curbside space... and, in some cases, if the venue closes, who's responsible to take down the structure... ?
