We received this photo and a message from SBites reader Esfir Neyman:
We have a stripped vehicle on Emmons Ave for over a month. Reported to 311 – nothing is being done. In addition we have cars parked without plates on Emmons between E 26 and E 27th streets which we reported to the city as well, but they are still there.
It’s been a while since we’ve received a stripped car e-mail, which I hope means the situation is improving. Now let’s see if someone trucks the cars Esfir writes about away. Best of luck.
Has anyone else noticed a spate of stripped cars in the neighborhood? Apparently peeling an abandoned or junked car of all its undamaged parts is the latest rage in Sheepshead Bay.
It seems that the mother of all misery, Superstorm Sandy, is likely to blame for the trend as apparently all the cars getting stripped are all the abandoned non-functioning ones short circuited by flood waters. Its hard to blame these “street strippers” as many of the Hurricane Sandy cars still haven’t been pushed off the streets.
