Shopping Cart Series: Left For Dead

Not all escapee shopping carts end up frolicking the streets of Sheepshead Bay or telling their stories to journalists. Some get pushed around, damaged, abused, hit by cars, and left for dead.

This shopping cart, now known only as Jane Doe, was found on the sidewalk under the Sheepshead Bay Road train station overpass. An eyewitness said he saw this shopping cart cahorting with the two drunken revellers from last week. Another eyewitness told us that this cart was just a hard working cafe table. If anyone is able to do a positive I.D. of this sad cart, we might be able to find her next of kin.
