Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: McGolrick Park

cordoned off

Today I decided to avail myself of the sunshine and go for a walk. On a lark I opted to swing by McGolrick and see how things are shaking. As you can see we have a problem.

welded

We all know manhole plundering is an problem here. But this one is epic in both scope and chutzpah. As it was explained to me by a very sweet, dedicated and frustrated Parks Department employee, the reason for the barricade is one of our more resourceful— and I’d presume STRONG— citizens saw fit to divest this man hole of its cover (so as to sell for scrap at our manifold number of scrap metal establishments). This is why the powers that be have seen fit to weld its replacement in situ.

seatlessbenches

As for these benches: I was told local youths have made divesting them of wooden planks is a chronic problem.

Is any of this new fellow Greenpointers? No, it is not. What makes it “news” is the fact this behavior— if merely by benign neglect—  is apparently still allowed to persist.
