By the time this moron is done New Yorkers will be looking back fondly on the dreary days of David Dinkins. Seriously, is this guy a five-year-old?
Upper East Siders still steamed about last week’s botched snow removal unleashed a new torrent of outrage Monday over the massive mounds of trash piling up on sidewalks.
Dozens of piles of plastic bags stuffed with refuse marred the posh neighborhood, despite official claims that “around-the- clock” efforts had cleared away all of the city’s “backlogged material.”
“This is bulls–t. First, de Blasio didn’t take care of us during the snowstorm, and now he’s letting us stew in our own garbage and recyclables,” griped Michael Kenney, 68.
Another resident, Mary-Anne Azzopardi, 53, said the situation was “just too much. You can’t walk on either side of the street without bumping into a garbage bag.”
She added, “This trash has been piling up for over a week. Thank God it’s not the summer, or the smell would be unbearable.”
Andrew Carillo, 47, noted that the waste was “piling up higher than the SUVs” and said Mayor de Blasio “should be the people’s mayor, taking care of everybody.”
He added, “Ignoring us isn’t going to make the neighborhood go away.”
Meanwhile, on de Blasio’s block in Brooklyn’s Park Slope, the only trash to be seen was a bunch of construction debris from a home-remodeling project — neatly tucked away in a tarp-covered dumpster.
Our advice to the folks on the Upper East Side: Leave.
