Hurricane? Good Day For A Swim In Brighton Beach, I Guess

Hurricane? Good Day For A Swim In Brighton Beach!

When Mayor Michael Bloomberg quipped during his press conference this morning that he had heard some surfers took to the waves, I figured it was some urban myth floating around.

Then I found this photo in my inbox from Arthur R., taken on Brighton Beach near Brighton 15th Street.

All I’ve got to say is: Dude, seriously?

  1. Silly Ned, That’s a picture of NAMOR! King of Atlantis!

    (It’s not Arthur Curry, cause that dude has Armor)

  2. complete MORON. He is the reason emergency workers risk their lives needlessly. Emergency services have enough work today and tomorrow without having to save pompous idiots like himself.

  3. Ned, I posted awhile ago that u really should interview this guy. He’s one of those guys that define the neighborhood, even tho technically he is Brighton,borders on s. bay

  4. You’re ignorant as hell. If something happens to him, or any of the other brain damaged jerks who are showing off by ‘toughing it out’, the emergency services HAVE TO GO AND SAVE HIS SORRY ASS. Get it? That’s how it works. So people who REALLY need services get delays because of idiots like your friend. He’s not a great guy, he’s a selfish jerk.

  5. What an IDIOT! COMPLETE MORON! I hope that if he needs help EMS will not respond to him! Always a NUT JOB looking to make it in the media! I guess all the stuff you hear on TV about B.B. is True, full of Idiots!

  6. I totally agree with VolunteerEMT! My husband was an Paramedic and Fireman, this is the very type of ignorant behavior that slows down help for those with REAL EMERGENCIES! RIDICULOUS UNDESERVING MORON!

  7. Ann you hit the nail on the head! Selfish Jerks! Been watching all evening from the west coast, this is one God Awlful Storm!
