New York Shitty Day Starter: Razors At The McGolrick Park Playground?

This rather disconcerting item comes via the North Brooklyn Community Group (on Facebook):
I saw this on another list today….very freaky…who would do such a thing???
I was talking with the Park’s gardener this afternoon and she asked me… to spread the word and asked that you do the same…
This morning one of the McGolrick Park regulars found razor blades taped to the playground equipment. The Park’s people will be checking the equipment every morning for a while but ask that we check ourselves before we let our kids play as an added precaution.
I don’t know whether there is or will be police involvement, e.g.- night patrols. Honestly, the police have been fairly non-responsive thus far regarding park vandalism over the past year but I cannot imagine that this wasn’t reported at least.
Some of the people reading this might recall last year a citizen circulated a petition regarding safety and maintenance issues at this very park. In any case a little extra vigilance never hurts. Be careful folks!
