As hundreds of fire alarms around town are decommissioned in the age of wireless telephony, they are being reimagined and reappropriated for new purposes. Here, a former alarm stanchion on Flatlands Avenue west of Ralph Avenue in Canarsie has been given a new lease on life as a people’s community rubbish receptacle. Occupy your neighborhood!

    Absolutely, positively, unquestionably DISGUSTING.

    The perfect compliment to the sewage treatment plant across the street…

    At least the folks deposited their trash into the bowels of the former fire alarm box. They could have simply thrown it onto the ground. Maybe someone at the Department of Sanitation could identify this location as worthy of a garbage pail.
