The Sanctuary, Hudson-Related's and RIOC's gift to Roosevelt Island, shows off its freedom from responsibility by gifting us with a taste of the Upper East Side: Trash stacked loosely in bags, some not secured, left to soak up the rain for days. Who knows when anyone will come to pick it up?

As we reported earlier, see-no-evil manager Hudson Related and negligence-heavy RIOC, turned The Sanctuary loose on Roosevelt Island without a hint of oversight. 

The Sanctuary moved in after Hudson-Related evicted Dayspring Church, a foundering financial enterprise that still managed to be good neighbors.

What The Sanctuary got in exchange for rent is the space, plus freedom from pesky, legally required building permits, freedom to dispense alcohol without a license, freedom to open without an occupancy permit, freedom from FDNY inspections and free traffic support from the Public Safety Department when they planned to use Octagon's parking area and a fire lane for customer access.

All this thanks to see-no-evil Hudson Related and negligence-heavy RIOC.

But now, as we predicted, The Sanctuary's taken freedom one step farther, bringing us UES style abandoned trash outside all weekend, bags full of it, including food waste and metal beverage containers. 

The photo accompanying this article was taken in the rain on Sunday morning, and the rain-soaked trash was at least 24 hours old.
