This is so great. Mayor Bloomberg is looking to put a new garbage transfer station on East 91st Street, right in the heart of City Council Speaker Gifford Miller's turf. And it's no ordinary garbage - it's solid-waste. The Mayor's plan would involve taking NYC's trash out by barge, a practice that has stopped with the closing of the Fresh Kills landfill. Upper East Siders protested the plan, with shirts that said "Stop" and signs that succinctly said, "It Stinks," as they fear rats and vermin, not to mention possible odors.

Gothamist loves the idea of politicians putting garbage in their rivals' neighborhoods; there's something quaint, old school and refreshingly literal about that.
