Culture on the Cheap
Despite the stifling humidity I took a nice long walk this afternoon. Upon crossing the BQE at 3:00 p.m. I noticed a group of men conferring with some police officers at Father Giorgio Triangle.
Once I crossed the street I learned why.
It would appear that someone has stolen the bronze plaque from this monument. He (or she) sold it for scrap. This is the second instance of metal theft I have heard of in as many months (1000 Manhattan Avenue was broken into and stripped of all its copper pipe recently as well). This is ridiculous.
P.S.: Down the street I discovered that someone stole the potted plant in front of the Brooklyn Kitchen.
What the hell is wrong with people? If it isn’t yours don’t take it. Why is this concept so difficult for some of our fellow citizens to comprehend?
