In the ongoing war between private and public transportation, there is no compassion, no kindness, no mercy. No one is spared, not even innocent bus shelters standing by the side of the road, doing nothin’ to nobody. Everything is fair game, and curbs mean nothing to menacing, bloodthirsty vehicles out to slay their public transit counterparts and claim dominance over the roadways…

Hey, maybe we’re jumping to conclusions. Perhaps a cyclist did this?

Avenue Z and East 13th Street, around 7:00 a.m. Thanks to David T. for the tip and photo.

  2. Okay enough already! I am sorry! It was my fault. 
    You see I was thirsty so while walking in the Bay and drinking my Diet Coke, I inadvertently Dropped my Mento in the bottle.  It wasn’t pretty. 

  3. Murry, I think maybe you don’t read all the coments posted before commenting on mine.  Or maybe it jusyt went over your head.  Don’t pass judgement on my screws and I won’t pass any on your intelligence.

  4. Master Plumber, I believe you have a couple of screws loose. El Greco is on Emmons Ave and Sheepshead bay Road.

  5. I left work early to get to the El Greco parking lot for 7:45 and for what? There was no bus stop destruction snitch rumble.  Next time please send out a cancelation notice!

  6.  come to el greco parking lot tonight at 7:45 PM. We’ll see who gets the stiches then.

  7. I was sitting there when this happened. It was a dark blue range rover driven by a blond Russian woman. She came to a stop after she smashed through the bus stop. I ran over to see if she was alright but she sped away. I didn’t get a chance to to see the whole license plate but I believe it started with FAP 2 something.


    This is the bus stop.  Lets hear your Explanations to a none existent hydrant, if anything there is a Mailbox there…… but it’s a bit far from the actual shelter.

    Hate to poo poo all over a good car hate post but according to google street view there are two fire hydrants placed in such a way that it would be kind of tricky to a car to wiggle in and take out just the bus stop.  If this is the same but stop there would be cars parked directly to the left and a hydrant right in front of it and to o the right.  I can think of more than a few other explanations for this.

  10. Must not disturb the evidence at a crime scene. At least no one was waiting for the bus at the time.

    I always thought so, but could never find proof….  and now they strike again.

    No one heard anything, saw anything, called 311 or 911….  And of course, no one cleaned up anything.  It’s like Sheepshead Bay isn’t part of the rest of Brooklyn. Or New York….
