The Canillac.

The little old ladies that have been around forever collecting cans for money are awesome..They are getting paid AND recycling at the same time..And they are serious about what they do-Don't get in between them and a can or a bottle...you COULD get hurt. My friend Shayne however, has the best canning cart in the city. He calls it the Canillac and it has an Optimus Prime mask attached to the front of it-that speaks! A compass, a little radio and his skateboard on the bottom of it so he can push it around faster. The only think that cart needs now is a giant HD TV!

  1. This to me exemplifies the spirit of New York. From your inventive friend's 'Canillac', to the 'little old ladies' who work & recycle, to your accurate assessment of them: 'awesome.' This is the New York I know and love. This is the New York I remember. This is the New York I see through your lens, the one you reveal and revere in this blog. There has never been, nor will there ever be, a city with this spirit...sorry, I just got something in my eye...it's allergies...or somethin'...

  2. You do miss NYC, don't you? It's like that Flight of the Conchords song, "I'm Not Crying."...."For your information there's an inflammation in my tear gland...."

  5. Those little old ladies are crazy about cans. Last year, on Orchard Street, two got into a wrestling match over garbage. In plain daylight!
