Nasty Newsrack Photo Contest Finalists
The Municipal Art Society will be announcing the winner of its Nasty Newsrack Photo Competition tomorrow.
MAS launched the "OUTRAGE!!! Nasty Newsrack Photo Competition" to highlight the rampant legal violations of newsracks in New York City, and received more than 200 submissions. MAS is currently is exploring new newsrack policies and designs that have been successful in other cities, such as Houston, Dallas and San Diego. Unlike New York, these cities limit the number of newsracks at any given corner, have strict criteria regulating their design, and allow only steel boxes; plastic boxes are prohibited.
And my personal favorite: SW corner of 1st Ave. and 51st St.
