Who’s Chasing Sanitation?
Lisa and Liz met while working on the Park Slope Reader.
Liz was editing for it and hired Lisa as one of their contributing columnists. They enjoyed working together so much – well, Lisa got a wild idea about writing about and photographing Sanitation Workers after a SanMan made sure she got home safe one late night shortly after she moved to Brooklyn.
She invited Liz out for fried chicken and cocktails at Sidecar in Park Slope to woo her. And so, the two started their journey of falling in love with the entire Department of Sanitation. Both natives of Tennessee and residents of Brooklyn living two miles apart, the two girls couldn’t have found a better project to come together on. The Sanitation Workers see them running after them with their camera, pen and curly hair and continue caving into their pleas of “no, we’re not graduate students working on a garbage project – we want you” pleas for pictures and stories.
