We are sad to report that the Lincoln Square BID has experienced another theft and some vandalism of the amenities that our organization provides for the public's enjoyment. On the night of Tuesday, August 21 one of the BID's branded red umbrellas, a table, and a chair were stolen from Richard Tucker Park. Video cameras in the area have apparently captured some footage of the theft, which was reported to the NYPD's 20th Precinct. Then, this past week on Friday, August 31 one of the BID's new red tables in Dante Park was tagged with graffiti, which we were unable to remove.

Losing tables, chairs, and other amenities, like the BID-purchased trash cans that were stolen over the winter, is a loss for the neighborhood. We take great pride in our Streetscape and Beautification Program and hope you enjoy our amenities. If you see anything suspicious in the area, such as someone folding up a chair and carting it away or defacing some of our street furniture, please help us by reporting it to the NYPD or by informing a nearby, uniformed Public Safety Officer.
