Oh man, what is sadder than an abandoned toy? I spotted this rag doll,  a Sesame Street character who is a magical fairy called Abby Cadabby, tossed between a dumpster and a garbage bag near Campos Plaza on East 14th Street. Her Bright Pink yarn hair caught my eye immediately. I feel sadness. I’m sorry I could not save you, littler Pink-haired fairy muppet doll!

On the way to the laundromat with a load of clothes, I passed by this spray-painted gold, female mannequin torso, which has been discarded curbside, atop an old wooden cabinet, and other assorted detritus, on East 14th Street in anticipation of the weekend garbage pick up.

I can’t say if the black magic marker designs on the nipples is part of the artwork, or just the evidence of neighborhood teenage boys acting like juvenile idiots.

She had additional “comments” scrawled in the same black marker on her backside. I can only assume they were rude in nature.

Gold Mannequin Torso Upshot

I hope an artist found her and took her home.

The Party’s Over
