Jackhammer much?

Only in Park Slope do the construction workers get their coffee at Whole Foods while leaving their jackhammers abandoned in the street. Seriously. I went to Whole Foods for coffee this morning as per my weekend tradition. I noticed that the line at the cafe was unusually long with city construction workers.

After leaving, I spotted an abandoned street work site complete with unattended jackhammers.


This is risky for a variety obvious reasons. Given that this is Brooklyn, it is also risky for a reason less obvious if you arent from the area. Brooklyn loves to upcycle. Rather than throw anything useful away, we put it out curbside for free taking. I’ve claimed all manner of useful things in this manner, from tomato cages to chairs to kitchen appliances.
