After Winter and Before Spring Comes Snow-Garbage Season

11 Mar 2015, Manhattan, New York City, New York State, USA --- New York, United States. 11th March 2015 -- Dirty chunks of ice, as hard as concrete, collected over numerous snow storms and days of freezing temperatures remain on the New York streets defying the recent rain and warm weather. -- Temperatures in the 50's and seasonable temperatures in the 40's later this week may cause New Yorkers to bid goodbye to these cold weather memories. --- Image by ?

Nothing like the death of one season and the rebirth of another to remind us that New Yorkers are disgusting slobs with zero respect for the environment. As the temperate weather melts the snow and we begin to consider complaining about spring, many are looking around our fine city and thinking: Ew.

New York, as it turns out, is less a winter wonderland than it is a city situated at the peak of Garbage Mountain, all of us happily living our lives atop piles of candy wrappers and old retainers.

Ah, New York in springtime.
