August 4th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Forget the news about eminent domain suits and new estimates for a possible opening of the Nets Arena. Here’s some very compelling and current Atlantic Yards-related imagery. This is a toasted BMW 5 Series. The GL reader who sent it writes: “sucks for them. spotted at the 6th avenue bridge over atlantic yards (two blocks from the dean street fire station).”

    This portion of Sixth ave in Brooklyn is the final resting place for police impounds. So, this was torched elsewhere and hauled for “investigation”, it will be there for about a week i think.

    An FDNY paramedic was busted for lighting his own car – a new BMW 535 – on fire in Brooklyn, cops said yesterday.

    Glenroy Griffith, 39, set his gray 2008 sedan on fire by Prospect Park’s Wollman Rink near Lincoln Road on Friday afternoon, police sources said.

    “He opened the side door of the car, lit a match, threw it inside and walked away,” one witness told cops.

    It was unclear why he allegedly started the blaze.

    Griffith, a 19-year veteran, was charged with reckless endangerment and arson, then released without bail.
