Poles / by Michael Lorenzini

In New York they have been removing all the old-style parking meters to replace them with electronic ones that take credit cards.  But they just take the meters and leave the poles behind.  I noticed that if you go downtown all the poles have nice rubber caps on them, but up in Harlem they just leave the sharp tops exposed.  Perfect for potential face impalement if you trip on one.  I predict a rash of lawsuits from people with semi-circular scars.
