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...

A sign posted to 120 First Ave. between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place to help clear up any confusion!
This is NOT 120 1/2 or 120A. This is 120 ONLY.
Thanks to Steven for the photo...

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... ?

As seen this morning on Avenue A at the Ninth Street entrance to Tompkins Square Park... this is latest in a series of messages posted around Tompkins that someone modeled after the "Keep This Far Apart" social distancing signs that the Parks Department unveiled in early April ... other messages have included "Stop Killing Black People" and "Justice for Breonna."

As seen on the front door of a building on Ninth Street... a "Notice to all Residents" about new legislation "that mandates that every resident of the Upper West Side born before July 23, 1996 is now required to listen to a minimum of 200 hours of Fiona Apple before the end of 2020 and every year afterwards."

And the photo is of Emmy Rossum, who used to play a character named Fiona Gallagher on Showtime's "Shameless."

And ICYMI... spotted at the Neighborhood Deli at 185 Avenue C between 11th Street and 12th Street... Eden tweeted it last Sunday and it went viral (dwarfing the Kardashianism singage tweet!)... the sign has also been spotted in other cities (and boroughs) these past few months...

Signs of the times

The sign reading "End Toxic Masculinity" is now hanging on Avenue A at the St. Mark's Place entrance to Tompkins Square Park... this is the latest in a series of topical messages seen in and around the Park this summer...

The unknown artist modeled these after the "Keep This Far Apart" social distancing signs that the Parks Department unveiled in early April ...

A piece of cardboard with a message spotted along the Bowery near First Street:

And from the Notes in the Lobby: After Hours Edition... this note in an East Village lobby is a little NSFW, so...

To the thieves in this building.

I will find out who you are.

Where I come from BITCH

we cut your fucking hands off

and mail it to your family.

You like stealing from hardworking people, huh?

The one who took less than 20 mins to take

my package, I hope you enjoy wearing my underwear.

[Etc. Etc. Etc.]

I WILL FIND YOU Degenerate.

I curse your hands and your blood line.

Thanks to Mark White for the photo! I think!

Urine in trouble if you pee here?

Dave on 7th notes new signage on Seventh Street between Avenue A and Avenue B:

Any person urinating in public will be prosecuted

Area under surveillance

(Don't tell anyone, but it's a fake sign. Urinating in public is a misdemeanor. Per Administrative Code Section 16-118 — Public Urination are eligible to plead guilty and pay a $50 fine by mail. This program is available to persons charged with this petty offense only, and only if no other summonses are issued to the individual at the same time.)

Calling out a plant thief on 7th Street

Someone is understandably upset about the plant theft in this tree well on Seventh Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue... EVG reader Robert Miner shares photos of the messages left at the scene...

"Cutting out my plants. You are worse than rats. You are very sick person." (Above!)

And: "Cutting my plants. Breaking my grill. You're a sick person. You need to see a doctor."
