Late Monday night (leading into the morning of Tuesday), many morning commuters may have seen something different flying hight atop the Brooklyn bridge.
As the Village Voice put it perfectly “New York’s public officials have been competing to see who can be more outraged and appalled over the stunt.” From Letitia James’ certainty of city wide upheaval to Brooklyn’s President Eric Adams offering 5,000 off his own dollars to stop this “terrorist act,” officials are pissed. (But don’t worry, the NYPD don’t see the terrorist connection.)
For the rest of the drama (oh, and there is), head over to the Village Voice.
But seriously, I think a few climbers got bored and wanted to use their new EMS gear.
