Great idea and great message! Thanks Justin!


Liberty Square is way cleaner than most of the streets in New York. It

is really pathetic that he would use cleaning as an excuse when most

of the streets of New York are filthy and disgustingly cluttered with

garbage bags that seem to never be picked up.


Make lots of creative signs that point out the irony in this!
