Before the pooper scooper laws in NYC there was an artist who would quietly and stealthily add whipped cream and a cherry on top of the mounds and mounds of dog poop that lined Minetta Street in Greenwich Village NYC. I wish I had a photo of that because it looked amazing!
Many years and a pooper-scooper-law-in-place later, there is a new dog poop decorater in town now on Manhattan's Upper East Side according Jennifer 8 Lee of the New York Times.
Stan O’Connor, a local tour guide posted a video of the work on YouTube. The artist spray-paints dog droppings that are being left on the sidewalk and after the dog waste is removed, the bright rings of orange and green spray paint remain, reminding passers-by of what used to be there. Bravo, brave and intrepid pooch poop artist!
