Litratong Pinoy #64: Lansangan (Alleys/Street)

trashy

Here's something you won't see on any postcard from New York City: its trash! Heaps of it on most streets! This one was right at Herald Square near the flagship Macy's store on 34th Street. Come dusk, these bags of garbage sprout on curbs near most shops and restaurants, begging to be collected by the city's waste management crew.

It's definitely a tourist distraction! (You should see the ones by Canal St. in Chinatown!)



Kung nakapasyal ka na sa New York City, nakita mo na ba ang gabundok na mga basura nila sa mga lansangan? Siguro, pag pinagsama-sama lahat ng ito sa lahat ng mga kalye sa buong siyudad ay magiging kasingtangkad nito ang Empire State Building. Haha.

so meron din palang ganyan jan... but the good thing is that they have imposed some rules like using transparent garbage bags only?

I haven't seen something like that here in Singapore yet. But I have seen the same in Japan. They just collect the garbages early in the morning.

i was also shocked to see trash everywhere near thames river and the london eye in london! there weren't any trash (or as the brits prefer, "rubbish") cans around for people to throw their trash into, so they're all over the streets!

Grabe may ganyan pala dyan. Sabagay ang pagtatapon ng basura ay pandaigdig na problema.

emarene said...

the bigger the city, the bigger the trash. as long as regular ang collection at proper disposal -- okay na rin. Happy LP!

yeye said...

of course! kahit saan meron niyan, overrated kasi ang NYC kaya kala ng iba eh super linis doon.

Linnor said...

meron nga yatang tao na na-feature dahil sa kanyang art made from nyc trash :)

Rico said...

Akala ko pa naman major streets like 34th have proper ways of dealing with their trash. Ganun din pala. Parang Pinas rin. Pero dito sa atin aabutin ng ilang araw bago makuha yung trash sa streets. :(

Cookie said...

ironic ano....tinitingala ng buong mundo ang NYC bilang isa sa mga progresibong siyudad tapos ganyan ang makikita mo.

kg said...

ay, meron din pala nyan dyaan! he! he! pero nakaplastic ha at maayos pa din ang pagkapatongpatong! :)

upto6only said...

Happy LP

witsandnuts said...

Merong palang ganyan dyan, hehehe. Bigla kong naalala na para ngang may napanood akong movie na may bundok ng basura na na-shoot sa NY. Akala ko props lang yung garbage dun. =)
