The area in front of the U.S. Post office on Doyers street in Chinatown has become a dumping ground for trash bags and detritus. Tipsters in the neighborhood, successfully snapped off a few shots of the determined dumper last fall. Apotheke, a bar catering to tourists and the bridge and tunnel crowd apparently doesn't agree with the city's health code which mandates that all commercial businesses put their trash curbside in front of their own business for private carting pickup.
Apparently these offenses are not new at all, as www.Boweryboogie.com has covered this before - documenting even more trash coming from Apotheke. in October of 2011.
The current owners of this signless not-so-secret hideaway (the Times is hardly an underground source) are Heather and her brother Christopher Tierny. Cage fighting could be a basement attraction at this establishment given physical altercations taking place there.
As the saying goes, "with friends like these who needs enemies?" Apotheke is not a friend to Chinatown.
Neither of the Tierny's nor their employees give a sh*t about Chinatown. They don't even have a sign.
Neighbors don't dump their garbage in the street, and they certainly don't violate fire codes that endanger residential buildings. Trummer boldly said after his arrest that " he would like to "teach the Fire Department about the flammability of different alcohols". - Really?
As a service to New Yorkers we remind you that the Department of Sanitation takes illegal dumping seriously. There are rewards offered to citizens who report illegal dumping in their neighborhood - I'm just sayin'............
Under this program, a person who observes illegal dumping and completes an affidavit leading to the conviction of those responsible is eligible for rewards of 50% of the fine collected. The individual must appear at the ECB hearing if the respondent appears at ECB to challenge the summons issued pursuant to the affidavit.
Under this new program, a person who provides information leading the DSNY to catch the dumper in the act, would be eligible for a reward of up to 50% of any fine collected. Information on the individual's identity would remain confidential and complainants would not have to appear at an ECB hearing. However, Sanitation Enforcement personnel would have to subsequently "catch the dumper in the act" based on the tip.
