I've done litter pickup on Long Island on previous trips. It's no special deed. I just figured that while I was looking for geocaches, I might as well pick up and dispose of trash that I see. This time though, I came prepared and I brought an extra bundle of plastic bags to put the trash in. However, I did not anticipate that I would fill up four bags so quickly! Seriously, so many public areas on Long Island are litter-strewn messes. Litterbugs have no shame and the situation only gets worse every time because once there's litter on the ground, people think that adding more litter is no big deal. Well, at least a few geocache sites are now clean.
I turned around and headed back a bit earlier in the evening so that I would have time to pick up a quick geocache in Queens before dinner in Flushing Chinatown. I see that Sentosa finally raised menu prices by a dollar or so per item. It's not such a bargain now compared to similar restaurants in New Jersey but it's still reasonable.
