[Updated] Someone crashed this Hudson River Park golf cart at 5th Street and Avenue A

A buzzy morning on Avenue A as passersby came across this golf cart/maintenance vehicle from the Parks Department up on the curb with two smashed tires at Fifth Street. 

EVG reader Concerned Citizen shared these photos of the vehicle... apparently the victim of a joyride (we don't know that officially, but)...
... which is all the way from Hudson River Park ...
And we whipped up a map to show you where the 4-mile-long Park is (in case you don't know exactly) ...
At the moment, we don't know any of the particulars — the when, the who, or, importantly, the why. 

The NYPD and the Parks Enforcement Patrol were at the scene. 

Updated 12:30 p.m.

Derek Berg spotted the stricken vehicle on First Avenue and Seventh Street at about 11 a.m. heading back to the west side...


  1. Is it officially "vandalism week" in the East Village? Did I miss the memo?

  2. Hopefully they will compile camera footage from this journey for some much needed comic relief.

  3. Now we know how the EV raccoon got here, he hitched a ride.

  4. Looking forward to additional coverage!!

  5. Hmmmm, was there a new release of The Fast and The Furious movie?
