Chasing Sanitation

Falling in Love with New York's Strongest

:: MayDay MayDay – Now What? ::

Monday, May 2, 2011. 1:40am.

Around 11pm on MayDay/May 1, 2011, it was announced to the world that Osama bin Laden had been killed. By Americans. The President confirmed it. Now regular TV network programming has resumed.

But tomorrow? What happens next?

It’s now two hours into watching more Facebook newsfeed than TV coverage. I don’t need CNN. Don’t want Tom Ridge or Napolitano or Bloomberg to tell me what’s going on. What I really need is to hear from Sanitation Workers of New York.

So, Sanitation Workers – tell us.

What does this mean for New York?

Now. Tomorrow. For you. For your job. For your family. For my neighborhood. Tell me what this means to you, a New Yorker.

I learned New York through talking to all of you.  Keep talking … we’re still listening.

… and as always, thanks for all you do.
