Civil Servants

Some people think of civil servants as nebbish folk who spend the day inside an office, filing important papers. That's certainly one type, but there are others, many of whom we see regularly!

Here is one such civil servant, cleaning Avenue A:

Street sweeper.

And right behind him was another:

Civil servant garbage man.

It reminds me of a song by a band called Talking Heads. They never lived in the East Village, but they were very popular with those who did, a long time ago in the 1980s!

So on this Cinco de Mayo, remember to thank the civil servants, who keep the East Village so spic and span!
