An ingenius Brooklynite cooked shrimp on a 72nd Street stoop — literally, on the concrete — during a hot June afternoon, neighbors say. Seeing the dozens of decapoda roasting on the doorstep between 11th and 12th streets was too much for one Dyker denizen to stomach.
“I thought, ‘Man, that’s dirty if somebody’s gonna eat that,’ ” said Vinny V., who lives nearby on 74th Street and asked that his last name not be published for personal reasons. “What if a dog comes by and pees on it?”
Vinny wasn’t convinced residents were actually cooking the shellfish — rather than just defrosting them — until he returned to the block later that day.
“We came back and the shrimp were on the sidewalk,” he said. “They were following the sun with the shrimp.”
A woman who answered the door at the residence on July 7 said she did not know anything, and did not speak English.
Another neighbor speculated that sun-drying might be a traditional rural cooking method that only appears gross on city sidewalks.

Brooklyn manages to top Queens in disgusting food handling showdown

celebrate the diversity.
We don't do things like that in America! Understand?
By seeing the stainless metal door leading to the basement I can tell who is cooking the shrimp !
And this is why we have diseases that were wiped out in this country returning.
I thought it was street art but it's just a disgusting culinary cultural thing (Chinese?)
Is there any difference these days between the two?
Common Sense may be officially extinct here. This may be the second dumbest thing to happen in the past 24 hours if anyone has seen the douche who tried to charge his phone on a broadway stage.
They probably are preparingvfood for the restaurant that they run with the big A in the window.......
Someone should call the Health Department and the Sanitation. That practice is so disgusting for so many reasons. The individuals engaging in that practice must be breaking some laws/rules which will get them a fine.
Lately, while walking or driving through areas in Bayside, you see the most unbelievable things. OMG Bayside has changed for the worse. On the northwest corner of 221st & 43rd Avenue there was a two-family attached house with the terrace adorned with backpacks and other accessories which were hanging from the roof of the overhang on the terrace. It was embellished by a large array of various pieces of clothing strewn over the patio railing. Who does that? On the same night, at different locations you see groups of people barbecuing, playing loud music, shooting off fireworks in their front yard, while their small children run around unsupervised.
I think I might vomit.
You should have seen the food cart vendors that Jerry Wolkoff rented a portion of the old 5 Points building location to.
They were preparing food amidst scurrying rats and filled the loading dock with their organic garbage, encouraging more rhodents to breed.
I will never eat from a food cart again.
I have seen Wolkoff's food vendors park their carts on Park Ave. midtown. The lunchtime crowd was unaware that these high end
vendors cooked their delights in their filthy LIC facility where rat feces were scattered.
Do not eat third world food unless it is in a luxury restaurant.
Have you ever seen a soybean tofu or mushroom cellar in Chinatown! I'd rather eat road kill!
I think you all need to be a little more open minded when it comes to ethnic diversity. You should be more accepting of these culinary and hygiene proclivities. I mean this is the world's melting pot ( or festering pot). Excise me now I think I'm going to vomit.
This really is disgusting...It would be much better if the shrimp wee cooked on aluminum foil. Food for thought... ALF
Almost as gross as the neighbors who would dry Guinea Pig meat on sticks on their second floor balcony in Corona.
