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???

Hi All,
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!

  2. There are supposed to be no “adults” without children in there but late in the evening some teenagers hang out in there and smoke pot. These are the same teens that ride the BMX bikes around the middle of the park and menace everyone. They are a nuisance, as was reported at the last precinct meeting. They are there basically every day unchecked by authorities. It would be nice if PD or Parks officers would once give them some attention. Hopefully this razor blade incident will motivate them to take the issue more seriously.

  4. A few years ago there was drug paraphernalia all over the place in McGolrick. It was pretty obvious that selling and using was going on there.

Tell me what you're thinking...
