Spotted At McCarren Park: Casting Call

When I saw this while passing McCarren Park this morning I could not help but chuckle. I mean, of all the places to post such a solicitation this person made an inspired choice. In addition to McCarren Park being the (on again, off again) home to some individuals who have seen fit to live in a re-purposed (and pinkified) school bus, but the park proper (the women’s comfort station* and water fountain adjacent to track for example) are quite literally falling apart for lack of maintenance. But don’t take my word for it— here’s what an actual resident of this public space had to say regarding the phenomenon commonly known hereabouts as “Lake McCarren” (as seen at left):

That is gross… AND I LIVE HERE!

“Cribs” it ain’t. In any case, if the above describes you or someone you have the misfortune of having as a landlord or roommate drop these folks a line.

*Which is perhaps why one parent saw fit to let her daughter to take a dump in the McCarren Park Dog Run today? I do not make this shit up.
