I just noticed two women walking up Hudson (near 43rd) this morning. Carrying trash bags, wearing gloves and using sticks to pick up trash on the sidewalks and grass strips.
When i lived on beacon hill, we had a 4-Xs a year trash pickup program. the type supported by the city. (i.e. "official" trash bags, i think they even supplied gloves, and we would pile the bags up every four blocks or so and the city came by in a day or two to take them all away.)
it was a fun way to meet/re-connect with neighbors, and obviously helped to keep things tidy.
this is all my long-winded way of asking… were the two women i saw today part of a neighborhhood trash pick-up group? (i suspect not, as they had thier own bags).
hoping to hear about the group if we have one… or perhaps get one started.
