From The New York Shitty Inbox: Bike Buffet?
Filed under: 11222, Criminal Activity, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
Two bicycles stolen over the weekend, including my partner’s. They did not take all the bikes, just the ones that were used the most and therefore easiest to get to. did not even take the most expensive bikes… It’s been five years that we’ve lived here and have never had to lock the bikes. It was definitely a crime of opportunity but it’s terrible – my partner and the other guy whose bike was stolen USED their bikes almost every day. everyone else whose bike was shoved in the corner rarely rides, even if their bikes were more expensive.
now i’m just worried that the thieves will come back and help themselves to the bike buffet. and i want another lock on my door.
Let this be a warning to you, my Williamspoint bicycle enthusiasts. Play it safe: be hypervigilant about keeping the entrance of your apartment building locked at all times. Better yet, keep your bicycle in your apartment. Better to suffer a little inconvenience than discover your bike has gone for a ride without you!
