These horse shit lovers were stationed on the island in the middle of 59th St at the southwest entrance to Central Park. I love the audacity and honesty of New Yorkers. They love horse shit and they don’t mind if you know it.
Horse shit is pretty popular, judging by the amount of it in the world, esp on the Internets. But most horse shit purveyors are not so honest as to hold up a sign advocating their passion.
Seriously — the new mayor should pick his battles. The horses of Central Park are lovely throwbacks. Sure they shit on our streets. But it’s a vestige of Old New York. In a city that sheds its past, quickly without nostalgia, it’s nice to see one small tradition persist. What the fuck, let the horses shit, and we’ll deal with it. NYers are good at dealing with horse shit.
Update: Here’s a picture of one of the controversial horses.
