    I was fascinated and delighted to see this. In the late 70’s and early 80’s, I lived in NYC, and had a number of odd jobs, some of which required the disposal of job-related trash, which we brought to Ganesvoort. But I always thought that it was the Ganesvoort DesPuctor Plant. Because that’s what the sign says. I never noticed that the stem of the “R” had broken off. My family and I were so amused by this, that we have referred to the dump, wherever we’ve lived, as the Despuctor.
