NYCParks Reminds Us Not to Ride Vehicles On Parkland. We Destroyed the Signs.

2012-05-14_10-47-04_167

Gerritsen and Devon- Only sign that survived.

Yep. Last week, NYC Parks put up about a half dozen signs on the avenue reminding us not to ride on the park land. Now most are destroyed or missing. One or two might be left.

    Sorry, but I don’t like the comment above that says “WE” destroy the signs. I feel like i’m being blamed for someone elses vandalism. This is just retaliation for all the comments made about the dirt bag bikers! The just showed their true colors!

    I agree! It is not “WE” that destroyed the signs, this is the work of a few bad apples. And how do we know that someone from outside the neighborhood didn’t do this? They all read what goes on here. How do we know they didn’t come here and steal and break the signs just so they can sit back with their friends and have a good laugh at our expense while we all point fingers at each other.

      Are you people “BLIND”, there have been dozens of times when in broad day light the KIDS FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD are Vadalizing the park!! Open your eyes as you drive or walk by the park!! Its the same kids from the neighborhood& they know who they are! it hasnt changed its just going to get worse as the weather gets hotter! Parent ask yourselves “Do you know where my children are? oops, I should !!

        Sorry, but haven’t been lucky enough to see them vandalizing the park, but it seem that YOU have! So what have you done about it after seeing them? I just wish it was like it was 30 years ago! I’d make one call and have 50 people down here to kick so ass!

          It’s not my kid mentality! If any one confronts any of those kids, the parents will try and kick “your” ass for saying anything, “how dare you say anything” then they will try and destroy you and run you out of the neighborhood!! how many times has anyone complaint about any one in the negihborhood, it goes know where!!

    maybe the parks dept isnt only spaking of us “DIRT BAG” bikers, maybe they also speak of all the DIRT BAGS who park there cars up on the fields during softball or little league. or maybe they are talking about the DIRT BAG airplane guys who drive all their cars through the gate to the fields. maybe one of them did it. so dont be so quick to judge us DIRTBAG BIKERS until i see a 100 comment thread on the airplane guys and parking up near the baseball fields.

    • anonymous

      That is true WHY are the guys with the airplanes allowed to open that gate and drive their cars back into the fields. Why is that allowed? No one should be exempt from the law!

        The AP guys have the keys to the gate and open and relock it when they come and go. They drive up a PAVED roadway to the field. Do you honestly not see a difference? Last year I posted something about their speeds coming and going, passed the skate park, and they must have taken note because they go nice and slow now. (that I have seen) They are not exempt from the law, they obey it. They are not damaging everything in their path.

        there vehicles are allowed to drive back there as per the parks dept

    • Fly Guy

      First of all Dom as a member of the airplane Society we do not drive our cars on to the baseball fields nor any where near them.We have a designated road to our flying field just behind Seba Park. and i can assure you we work hand and hand with the parks dept to ensure the maintenance and safety of our field and road.

    Speak for yourself. “WE” did’nt break them.

  • anonymous

    WHY does it always have to be us! How many other people use those fields everyday, so unless you have proof stop putting the blame on our neighbors.

    NYPD, Parks Police should coordinate on weekends and weekday afternoons to start arresting them and confiscating the vehicles. Enough is Enough! They can’t out run them if there are enough police. And if they are running from the police, refusing to stop – shoot ‘em! They have no respect for anyone here. The Avenue is a nightmare every weekend. When is it going to be stopped? It’s not like they are sneaking around, straight up the middle of the Ave on one wheel, how is it that they can not be caught?

      You are so Right!! The police are afraid of the parents!!! Not my good kid!!

    • anonymous

      because everyone knows someone down here to get their sh*t bag kids and young adults (hate to even call them that) off the hook … the naive mentality on this matter is mindboggling ….

    All the 63rd would have to do on any Friday, Saturday or Sunday is drive up and ticket all the cars and trucks that are parked on the grass outside the fields. And if anyone tried to move their car before a ticket was issued, the police should tell them to stay where they are until the ticket is issued. That would stop people from parking on the grass right off the bat! The back weeds are aonther story and more difficult to handle, but if they try going after them it may slow down or stop all together.

      I just don’t get why we can’t seem to get ONE police car stationed in the Beach. Of course we don’t want them harrassing people, but a presence and ticketing etc. when it is for public safety. Every few weeks I have to spend the day around Church Ave/Flatbush Ave and Wow, there are 2 STANDING BEAT COPS on EVERY corner all down Church Ave. I realize that it is a much higher crime area, but on the middle of a Sat afternoon it’s mostly families and people out shopping and there are police everywhere. Making them all feel comfortable and protected. And yet we can’t seem to get a single car, or a single beat cop.

  • Gerritsen Beach Boogeyman

    ok, I broke the signs…sorry…

  • Dom

    To the asshole anonymous writer who says if we don’t stop shoot em. You are arrogant you have no since of direction and you should go to the point and fall in. I’m tired of everyone blaming us riders for ever little thing that goes wrong in the beach. I love my neihborhood and I take care of it. When I see people littering or breaking things I stop them/ and or clean up after them. I’m getting sick of this. If you have something to say to me, have some heart and come to the fields and say something on Sunday I’ll be there. And that’s not a threat either FYI, I’m just tired of seeig threats and insults to me and my fellow riders from behind your keyboards, telephone tough guys you are. Saying shoot us. 114 comments on the other thread talking shit about us threats and everything meanwhile I’ve seen countless people back there and no one says anything and smiles or waves so end it. Why don’t u complain about the countless other laws beig broken in the beach and stop focusing on us riding when it doesn’t even effect you

    • Shoot 'em!

      It does affect me, and everyone else. It effects the quality of life for everyone. And no one has to confront you or try and talk to you about it. Talk about arrogant, how important do you think you are? Your wrong. It’s against the law for many reasons. So there you go officers, Dom will be back there Sun., he promised. If he doesn’t heed warnings to stop, shoot him.

      • krill squad leader

        ok so shoot’em plz tell me how the dirt bikes affect u we stay to the trails and slow doown if we see some one there also, like resident said people dont lisen to them we ride are bikes right past them so plz tell me y the dirt bikers would rip them down

  • Resident

    Even with the signs people don’t listen. They still pass that point with their vehicle

  • thomas

    Well maybe if u left us dirtbiker’s alone when we are in the back on the trails we wouldn’t take them down but no all you scumbag’s out there who like to call the cops say thanks

  • thomas

    we stay in the back well the people from the beach….The ones who r riding the streets and fcking up the fields are the asswholes from out of the beach cus they don’t care they dnt live here they shouldn’t be down here its pretty messed up us Gb dirt bike riders r getting messed with for something people out of the beach did…I’ve been riding dirt bikes since i was about 3 i grew up with them around i lobe riding i just want to ride the trails in peace…

  • Anonymous

    Thomas … you may be riding in the back, but I have seen riders that are familiar from the neighborhood riding on the fields. Calling people scumbags is not the way to resolve the problem.

  • thomas

    i know but its just really pissing me off that i can’t do the thing i love the most with out getting chased or get stuff thrown at me when I’m riding…Ive been hit in the head with rocks as i was riding(Thank god i always wear my helmet) but its pretty messed up
