An urban etiquette note as seen on Third Street between Avenue A and Avenue B... 

Stop shitting in our garden. 
We are tired of picking up your shit. 
Stop being a criminal. 

Anyway, enjoy your Easter holiday weekend (if you celebrate)! 

Thanks to Mark White for the photo!

Today in urban etiquette notes on 7th Street about dogs shitting in tree planters

An urban etiquette note from Seventh Street. (Thank you, East Village Neighbor, for the photo!

And the message, with an attention-grabbing salutation: 
Dear Neighbor Who Let His Dog Shit in Our Tree Planter, 

You waited until no one was looking, but we saw you and took a photo — busted! The EV has a website for people who rudely don't clean up after their dogs, congrats! You're on it. Have some courtesy for others. 

P.S. Invest in some poop bags.
East Village Neighbor asks, Is there actually a dog poop non-picker-upper website in the EV???

First, from Third Street and Avenue, a note about an annoying car alarm that went off over the weekend. "PLEASE fix your car's alarm — it was going off all night."

And, from an undisclosed building lobby: "If you stole my Keurig pods you're CLASSLESS" ...

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."

Letters addressing what you can and can't flush down your toilet are always so... awkward. Haven't seen it done well yet. And who dumps cat litter down a toilet? (Wait, don't answer that...)
