Litter Boxes on Greenwich Avenue

And no, they're not for kitties, although many people used to use their erstwhile contents to line kitty boxes and birdcages. Your scribe refers, of course, to the Not-So-Local Rag, aka Yellowwich Time.

There was a time when these boxes used to contain stacks of freshly-printed scandal and tale-mongering, back in the days when some people actually took the NSL Rag seriously. Nowadays, no one does, and so the boxes sit empty, or with week-old papers inside. Apparently the latest price hike to a full buck for half a paper (compared to days of yore) has killed the newspaper box business.

And yet they remain, battered and dented and scratched eyesores uglifying the Avenue. At this point, one might well think they are in violation of some local ordinance or other, such as loitering or littering. They certainly do not add to the aesthetic appeal of the Town of Greenwich.

How much longer will we have to put up with these unsightly relics of a past age, when people actually used to read the NSL Rag? First Selectman Tesei, can you have the Highway Department haul them away to the dump? Or perhaps Mary Hull can get Greenwich Green and Clean to get rid of them as part of their beautification program. But someone should do something, and soon, to get these litter boxes off the Avenue.

Perhaps these boxes could be restored for use as Kitty Condos ... they already have the sanitation facilities built in.

True, RTMM, but in whose back yard do you propose to erect these "Kitty Condos"? NIMBY!!!
