    In his novel "Fight Club", Chuck Palahniuk writes -
    “For thousands of years, human beings had screwed up and trashed and crapped on this planet, and now history expected me to clean up after everyone. I have to wash out and flatten my soup cans. And account for every drop of used motor oil. And I have to foot the bill for nuclear waste and buried gasoline tanks and landfilled toxic sludge dumped a generation before I was born.”

    I was on a trip to NYC, the Big Apple, a few weeks ago. Wandering in midtown near Manhattan, I saw these piled up trashbags and had to stop. And stare.

    This is the result.
