Our man with a cam Karl Junkersfeld was on the scene today at the Fruit Street Citibike docking station as workers were cleaning up a mess left by a Citibike hating vandal. A BHB tipster informed us of this “protest” this morning:
Serious vandalism occurred overnight at the northern end of the promenade on Columbia Heights between Cranberry and Orange. Red spray paint covered historic wall and Citibike station. Please cover this incident to make people more aware of how the neighborhood is changing and how things like this can be avoided in the future- ie. limbing up the trees in this location, adding more street lights and perhaps increasing police patrols.
If you watch Karl’s video carefully, you’ll notice that the genius who made this mess couldn’t even spell Derek and Clive’s favorite insult(note link is beyond NSFW) correctly.
@bkheightsblog Someone spray painted SCAM all over @CitibikeNYC in red. North end of promenade. Cops there now.

Do you agree with Karl that increased foot traffic to Brooklyn Bridge Park is partially to blame for this act?
