Return of the Little Park Slope Street Pissers
I was walking my dog this morning around 8:25 on 14th between 7th and 8th, when i walked by what at first looked like a father consoling his son, standing close behind him and sort of hugging/sheltering him (i'm guessing the kid was between 8-10, judging by size). but on quick closer inspection, i realized that he was actually sheltering his son from view while the kid peed into the road.Which led to this tale:
I was at work last summer with the door open, I have a good view of the tree in front of the bookstore. A woman stopped by the tree with a little girl 2 or 3 years old (I'm terrible with ages). The woman lifted the little girl's dress (no underwear) then held her up so she could pee in the tree well. This was on a sunny afternoon on 7th Ave, tons of people on the street. A 2 or 3 year old being unable to control their bladder I can understand. But an 8-10 year old? Hopefully, it was just poor planning and there was nothing wrong with the kid.Which led to this somewhat off-topic, yet compelling story:
I saw a chick pee on the subway one night a couple weeks ago. #2 train (haha) Brooklyn bound from 72nd St. Damn, there is a public restroom at 42nd St. Her friends held a big coat out as a privacy barrier. She pissed right on the train, in front of the door leading to the next car. I changed cars at 42nd. Ew. They were all tore and beyond conversation. It would never occur to my boys to pee in the street because I have never provided that to them as an option.It has not escaped our notice that the person that related the original Park Slope Pissing story was walking her dog, which does impart some irony. You can follow the entire amusing conversation here. And, for a trip down memory lane, might we suggest our post on the Subway Potting Pissing from last year. We now return to coverage of land use, zoning and other weighty issues.
