New York Shitty Day Starter: McCarren Park

August 12, 2009





July 2, 2009:

…I’ll call you late tonight – I am running to a meeting re. the homeless problem in Parks/on our waterfront street ends.

Stephanie Thayer
Administrator for North Brooklyn Parks – NYC Dept. of Parks & Recreation
Executive Director – Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn (OSA)

It would appear that meeting wasn’t very effective.


McCarren Park is pathetic.


These pits have become the norm for park goers. You get used to negotiating around them. It becomes natural after having ones shoes soaked in god-only-knows-what onceor twice.







Your tax dollars at work.

  8. I was simply being a wise ass. That said, the fetid pool of (???) really grossed me out. Whatever the problem is (plumbing? drainage?) it needs to be fixed. It is a health hazard.
