Scooby Doo, in the West Village

Waverly Place, NYC
Photo by myself in the West Village, around Charles Street and Waverly Place.

Poor Scooby Doo was held hostage by a moving van in the West Village.

Usually you will see captive stuffed animals like pink bunnies or Elmos on the grills of grimy garbage trucks. This moving van decided to follow suit.

As you can see, the streets are relatively narrow in this neighborhood. Good luck to anyone on the other side of this truck!

I was tempted to post a photo of someone sleeping on a front stoop, but then stopped myself.

Sometimes gritty reality can be a bit too much. The New York Jets failed to make it to the Superbowl, I had to zap another mouse in our apartment, a big one this time, which probably left some baby mice orphaned....yadda, yadda, yadda.

I'll take Scooby Doo anytime.

how do you get rid of the captured creatures once it's trapped? Were they alive? Just wondering?

I'm so glad you didn't post a photo of the sleeping homeless person. I feel sad when I see something like that...whereas your photo of Scooby Doo is truly uplifting!

And I know one of your photos would have highlighted the "gritty reality" in a way that might have been hard to take! You have a fabulous eye.

I love coming here and seeing your photos of a city I have heard and read so much about, but where I have never visited. Thank you...the photos make me believe I'm there...

I like Scooby - great capture Kitty!
& It stinks having to defend the homeland. Plus it's Winter, which seems to put a damper on things in general, especially when it's grey outside.

Ken said...

Funny? I thought Scooby was from the East Side, not West Side? and what would you call him if he were on a garbage truck? Scrappy-doo! Ha!

I love, love, love this photo. The buildings on both sides of the truck are awesome, and this stuffed animal on the front just shows the silly personality of the driver. Love it.
