The NYC Parks Department finally got around to cleaning the Fruit Street Sitting Area in Brooklyn Heights today. A crazed and untalented graffiti “writer” defaced the area along with an adjacent Citibike docking station between Monday (6/9) night and Tuesday morning. As we documented earlier this week, the Citibike station was quickly cleaned by Wednesday morning.
The Fruit Street Sitting Area sign, which perpetuates the false story that Lady Middagh named those streets, is still covered in paint.
Our man with a cam, Karl Junkersfeld, documents today’s Parks Department cleanup and lays down some mad knowledge of where the Fruit Street names really came from.
