Gerritsen Beach, Brooklyn NY

Recently a bus shelter was knocked down. It was reportedly knocked down on 9/15/06.

When I went up to investigate I saw a sign tied on to the damage shelter.




The sign reads:

DISGRACE Neighborhood people try to better our neighborhood and you do this.

Wake up asshole.

All I can say is don’t get caught we will be watching.

If you are tough and strong join the marines and fight.

    Some one should have a design contest for kids 5 – 12. Take the winning designs and place them on the bus shelters with poster paint, IE:- What dinners do during the holidays.
    This might stop some people from destroying the shelters, if not inspire thier friends to stop them. This kind of methd has worked with tagging, when a painted mural is put up.IE: Side of keyfood, law office on U and stuart street. Just an idea.
    It’s no secret there is a bounty on these kids heads, and I’m sure they are aware of this. The finger waving might only be fueling the big f#@k you they send by continuing to destory them every weekend. Instead of waiting in the bushes with cameras n bats, we should possibly spend time where children actually benifit in something they create, it might cause this perticualur crowd to think before they act.

    That’s so horrible. In Queens or Manhattan, none of this new shelters are destroyed. I feel sorry for Brooklyn.
    I think Cemusa should install vandalism-alarm system just in case. If vandalism tried to vandalism or spray again, this alarm will dispatch nearby police station. What do you think of an idea?

    o0 I feel so sorry for Brooklyn.. listen if that bus shelter fell on ur family member how bad wuld u hav felt.. the people who “destroyed” that bus shelter were acting out because it was an unstable shelter that was harmful.. for all of u adults who r miserable i ask u to understand that there are always 2 sides to every story nd most of the time the opinion of a person who was not there is not true.. so people that lik to argue over whose got the worst children, realize that somethings are done in the protection of the people who least realize that the world spins no matter what.. so wake the fuck up nd the kids who did this appolgize for the lost city money but also feel that it was necessary for the safety of others.. the kids who did this r not reckless maybe just over protective of people that may have been hurt

  • [...] It’s hard to believe that it has been 4 years since GerritsenBeach.net burst onto the scene. ‘Burst” might be a bit of an exaggeration since it really took 18 months or so of me talking to myself and few others (I know some of you are out there) before we really started to take off. As has become a tradition, here is that memorable first post, the one that started it all. [...]

  • Asking questions are actually good thing if you are not
    understanding something fully, however this post gives fastidious understanding yet.

  • The gentleman who presented it made a statement that
    I must be part man because of how <. It is important that you or your partner considers themself already a whole person, that you or your partner doesn. Patience is a virtue and an experienced gentleman knows the normal approach in matchmaking.

  • Hey outstanding website! Does running a blog such as this require a great deal of work?
    I’ve absolutely no knowledge of computer programming but I was hoping
    to start my own blog soon. Anyway, should you have any recommendations or
    techniques for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic however I just had to ask.
    Thanks a lot!

  • I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and
    let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The issue is something not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something
    concerning this.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

  • Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this
    blog loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem
    on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be
    greatly appreciated.
