This vision (which hails from the Vincent Abate Playground) comes courtesy of a chap we’ll call G. He writes (in an email entitled “Polish Drinking Garden”):
Somehow, the PDG has migrated to the McCarren park playground right behind the kids swings. Delightful.
There are three in this photo.
To quote the kids: Why do the swings smell like throw-up?
And that’s my daughter in the photo so you have my permission to run it.
Nice. Really nice.
UPDATE, 6:38 p.m.: Here’s another view courtesy of another angry playground patron!
And of course, there’s this.
The woman who took the above photograph opines:
This lovely pile of feces has been sitting on the playground next to the equipment for at least 2 days. No one has cleaned it up, I wonder how many of our kids have been exposed to Hepatitis just today. And year after year we can not figure out how to lock the playground at night. So Sad!
UPDATE, 7:55 p.m.: (Yet another) park-goer has taken notice of the situation and has news to relay!
One of them rolled over, confirming that he is alive.
I suppose if there is bird-watching and train-spotting, why not have a CPI (Chronic Public Inebriate) safari as well? Like most emerging hot trends it is clearly the rage at McCarren Park!
