How do the proprietors of the beloved Solid Gold, on East 5th Street, stop East Villagers from stealing the things they leave out over night?

Things left out over night.

They put a out a sign telling people not to.



Naturally, it helps to be polite.

The impact of this sign went beyond the table — it extended to the adjacent trash can, where someone put out their mushrooms for freegans to take:

Free mushrooms.

In fact, it extended next door, to where someone put out an onion for those same freegans:

Free onion.

The power of politeness!
