Anyone Park Your Bike on Vanderbilt Ave This Weekend?
If you did and you woke up on Sunday to find your tires shredded, you can find the backstory on the Brooklynian forum. Apparently, a misanthropic type went on a bike tire slashing spree Saturday night along Vanderbilt Avenue in Prospect Heights. A witness reports seeing “an older man in a hooded sweatshirt, looking like a Jawa, stealthily slashing each bike as he passed” before entering St. Joseph’s Apartments on Dean Street.
In other news, we recently heard from a reader that bike owners can get a pretty good deal on monthly parking at the garage on Underhill and St. Marks. With some haggling, you might be able to work out a price that beats Edison ParkFast’s $20/month rate.
