As a clarification to earlier news reports, we have learned the following from Brooklyn Bridge Park authorities:
At approximately 3:30 a.m. on Saturday morning, several individuals broke into the Pier 2 Uplands maintenance and operations yard.
Without keys, they turned on and drove a series of BBP’s utility vehicles and a bobcat.
It appears they used the bobcat to lift, and turn over, an NYC Parks Enforcement patrol car. The extent of the damage is under review.
The entire incident was recorded by our security cameras, and the tape has been handed over to NYPD, with whom we are working closely.
We will let you know of any further developments.
