Remember a few weeks back when we exposed the conspiracy between the City of Worcester and the Mosaic Cultural Complex? Your tax dollars have been graciously distributed to the folks over at 41 Piedmont Street who have been repeatedly violating our laws with their illegal blockades of city traffic. Lots of money too:


The $8,513 check was made during a time in which Mosaic was not a registered entity with the Secretary of State. That’s how little the city apparently cares about your money. They couldn’t bother themselves to research if the organization they were giving money to even existed. But what has the city gotten for that that $43K over two years? What have they done for society besides host some knitting circles and serving as ground zero for hippie command central?

The answer is of course, nothing. How could that $43K have been better spent? Well here’s an idea – why don’t we pay someone to pick up some of the trash that decorates the 290 corridor? When you drive through a city like Providence, which is the same exact size as Worcester, you see a nice looking place and a vibrant downtown. When you drive through 290 you see what I like to call a Vernon Hill yard sale.

Now imagine being a businessman and looking to invest in Worcester. Second biggest city in New England. Heart of the Commonwealth. Sounds like a good place to do commerce. Let’s take a trip to the Woo and check it out. First we’ll drive down the Mass Pike and head onto 290 East towards downtown. But right before your exit you see some of the beautiful scenery Worcester has to offer:





Wow, those are some nice glamour shots from Columbia Street. The discarded toilet matches well with the soiled mattress propped up by that lovely fence. Sure, Providence has a huge mall and a state capital building to look at as you drive through, but where’s the trash? Worcester 1, Providence 0.

Let’s suppose you get off at the Kelley Square exit so that you can stop at the Smokestack Urban Barbecue and Union Tavern. This is what you’ll see:



Good thing there’s a viewing chair on top of that dumpster. Because nothing says “invest in Worcester” more than free mattresses and a guy who just got kicked out of the Hotel Vernon sitting in a chair on top of a dumpster watching traffic go by. If you park your car at Kelley Square you can get out and have yourself a little slum sociable. The view is majestic:


That looks like a nice place to get molested.


Here’s what you’d see from the highway:





So many soiled diapers, so little time. That looks like the showroom floor from Rotmans in 1985. The pictures above are at the corners of Vernon/Jefferson and Ignalls/Fox. This is where Worcester furniture goes to die. Here’s what it looks like from up there.


Wow, what a work of art that is. Old discarded big screen TV’s. Graffiti covered light poles. A creepy Elmo chair. That right there is a Vernon Hill masterpiece!!

What’s on the other side of that stone wall?


You know you’re Livin Gooo-oooo-ooooo-ooooooddd when you’ve run out of places to throw your trash in your own backyard. Luckily some of this gorgeous artwork is covered up by some beautiful Worcester weeds.


I can understand the couches and mattresses being thrown out, but what’s up with the plastic bags? What kind of fake Worcester person throws out plastic bags? You’re not really from Worcester if you don’t have at least 50 plastic bags available at your disposal. When you’re from the Woo you pretty much use a plastic bag for everything. It’s what I like to call a “Worcester lunchbox.”

Basically Worcester has to decide what type of people we want to attract. Either it looks nice, or it looks like this. If you’re Margee Pesikov, or some young aspiring go-getter looking to lay down your roots and start a career, would you want your backyard looking like this?


That seems like a nice little walkway to take a jog, go for a romantic stroll, or try out some heroine that you just got from Diego. Whatever you wanna do really.

The bottom line is the City of Worcester government as it currently exists would rather spend money on the good folks at the Mosaic Cultural Center than they would fining absentee landlords or making Worcester not look like a village in Caracas. This is what your tax dollars pay for. God Bless you Worcester.

    Back in the nineties, the state highway peeps would clean 290 for one week. That is when Mariano was still around. Now it is pitiful to say the least. The thing to do, is send a email to the DOT, contact your rep. too. That usually works as a rule. If not, then contact the area media one way or another. Also, sometimes the city is liable for the trash too. Depends where the trash is, can get confusing at times. They have their own areas.

    I find it difficult to respect an opinion someone has, when the person is openly admitting they know drug dealers. I know none, and I’m not sure how I would go about finding one either. At least now I know I’m looking for white people. Thanks 😉 Do you also give advice on child rearing?

    41 piedmont st stays nice and clean. That’s all that really matters right? The mayor picks up the trash for us himself.

    I like the missing gas line cover in the middle of the road in the pic with the chair on the dumpster. Probably taken for scrap.

    Why is the herein delers name Diego? That sound like a Latin name and most of the drug dealers I know of in Worcester are white. But this is Worcester I would expect nothing less than racism to and discrimination to pop up in an article having nothing to do with race.

        It’s a reference from te chapelle show and a recurring name we use. Talk to save chapelle if you find it to be racist. Next time well call him smitty to please the pc patrol. Great job patrolling the Internet today fuckface.

    I agree on everything here except 1 point…

    Providence is 10 times a bigger shithole than worcester.

    I’ve spent many years working in that city and outside of that fancy little hipster downtown area you see from 95 – it’s disgusting and dangerous.

    Okay everyone, here’s what you do: if you see trash on the side of the road, like mattresses, couches, bags of trash, etc. call the City Complaint Line at 508-929-1300. Report the trash, they will give you a record/ ticket number, write this down, as well as date and time you called. In 2-3 days, if trash is still present, call again, citing your record/ticket number and when you called. If after three phone calls contact your city councilor or a councilor at large. Tell them you have reported (x) on (these days) here is my record/ ticket number. It’s their job to find out who has been assigned for clean up and when it will be done. Get involved, don’t just let this happen to our city.

    Looks just like home to me. I grew up off of Upsala St. Nothing has changed other than the houses have newer windows and siding. Its still mostly full of people who dont care about “The landlord’s house” and property.

      I know there are still some beautiful neighborhoods but sometimes when I look around I feel disheartened. I lived in Grafton Hill and loved it. Now? I’m not so sure..

    Turtle boy I always read your blog and I love it. You tell it like it is. That being said I have to ask this question. Why why why do people literally shit where they eat?! This is your home! Stop it! You’re doing it wrong! Have some pride.. Totally grossed out. This city could be what it once was..could be. I know it’s a stretch but try to remember.

    I’m sure those donation boxes for clothes are great, but they turn into nothing more than dumping grounds for old mattresses, couches TVs etc.

    I thought my neighborhood looks like the city dump, palace compared to your pics shown here. I used to volunteer my kids for EarthDay clean up, which is a total waste of time, the next day scumbag losers are throwing their trash where ever they feel like it. They shoot up and smoke their lives away, right out in the streets. No morals here. Living off of the peoples taxes. I feel like Worcester is over populated with these scumbags!

    It’s worse than you think.

    I know the owner of one of those properties. The city requires them to clean the lots twice a year or get a substantial fine. It’s basically a free garbage service for the scumbags that live in the area, who use the property as a dump. Twice a year, cleaned completely. Yet come back a month or two later and you’ll see couches, beds, syringes, etc.
