Trashing the Metro

07.30.09 Will Sherman


When Toronto-based street artist Posterchild found some disused newspaper dispensers, he filled them with flowers. Less creative White Plains commuters just filled an abandoned Metro newspaper dispenser with trash. And once it couldn’t hold any more of their garbage, they jacked open the top so they could continue not using the trash bin just 25 feet away. As part of her daily commute, Greenpoint blogger Bitch Cakes monitored the disgusting development for more than a month until it was finally cleaned up.
