It's Our Park: Battered Street Lamp

Last night some vandals with a lot of aggression and not too much creativity attacked one of the street lamps at the 6th Avenue and 44th Street entrance to the park. Several weeks ago three or four more central lamps were cracked, but nothing like this. Those lamps have been repaired.

In the midst of some benches being repaired, the fences around the grass being re-erected, and staff cleaning up the myriad of trash left behind, more destruction. Inevitably, the image of Sunset Park as a place where people just don't care or turn the other way will begin to (continue to?) be the main impression others and the City has of our neighborhood.

So sad.
