In the meantime, a lengthy chain link fence encircles almost everything, leading to tears from children and a string of swear words from an Area Dad, who helpfully pointed out that at least “the fucking carousel” was an option as consolation.

Monday, March 12th, 2018

Not sure what this Bro’s beef was. He might have thought she would intrude upon the outbound JFK Drive bike lane, and I too thought she could do just that, but I don’t think she did, not really, IIRC.

7J7C9373 copy

Well maybe there is an operator for this 800-pound beast, but dude didn’t seem to be doing much. It’s radio controlled. From the Czech Republic it is. Anyway, it kept busy in Big Rec, despite the nearby presence of non-robotic, bright orange French helicopter yesterday:
