On Saturday evening around 6:30pm, you heard "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol blasting out of a vehicle parked at the corner of 48th and 8th. What type of vehicle was that? Was it a VW Jetta with New Jersey plates?
It must've been one of those cars from the suburbs still all decked up from a high school graduation, driven by a girl from Rockland County who's listening to Z100 and can't get over the fact that all her friends are going off to four-year schools and she's going to community college.
No, but a good guess. Try again.
Was it a limousine filled with rowdy members of a bachelorette party?
Wait! I've got it! It was the La Rumba Express!
Nope. But SO CLOSE!
I give up. What vehicle did you hear "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol blasting out of at 6:30pm on a Saturday evening in Hell's Kitchen?
A New York City Sanitation Truck.
Hey, garbagemen have feelings, too!
