Cadman Plaza Petting Zoo
Commuters through downtown Brooklyn's Cadman Plaza were treated to an unexpected sight last night - children feeding pigs, goats and chickens in front of Borough Hall. It was all part of the “National Night Out Against Crime," an annual NYPD program intended to build stronger police-community relations. Brooklyn borough president Marty Markowitz stopped by several of the "Night Out" events around Brooklyn, and was met by politicos including Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly at the 60th Precinct event at the New York Aquarium in Coney Island. Brooklyn Ramblings didn't make it down to Coney Island, but from our vantage point in downtown Brooklyn, the petting zoo was a huge hit.
