Yesterday it appeared that the DIY BQE skate spot in Brooklyn was being destroyed. So around 5pm we decided to head over and take a look at the aftermath and to our surprise most of the original stuff was still in place. It appears that the DOT looked to be cleaning up the spot removing dirt, garbage and unfortunately anything not connected to the bridge which included some of the BQE spot’s latest additions. Figuring their work was not done yesterday we headed over to check it out again around 9am this morning and we spotted a paint crew beginning to paint the pillars but no other equipment. Hoping their work is done and it was just an annual cleanup but if we hear any updates we will post below in the comments section.
