Brooklyn Subway Surfers Stunt Filmed


A group of arrogant subway surfers were filmed running over the Brooklyn-bound J train cars over the Williamsburg Bridge.

At least eight people performed the perilous feat on Friday as the train entered Williamsburg from Manhattan’s Lower East Side and approached the Marcy Avenue station, images posted online showed.

Some of the impetuous daredevils have been seen enthusiastically sprinting and jumping the length of the subway car while other more cautious thrill seekers sat or crouched on the roof of the train during the reckless ride.

Most of the suspects were wearing black and identifying features were difficult to see in video clips, which appeared to have been taken from high-rise buildings near the mouth of the bridge.

The NYPD said it was aware of the footage and said the suspects could be charged with trespassing or reckless endangerment.

At least eight people made the hit Friday as the train entered Williamsburg from Manhattan’s Lower East Side.

“We don’t recommend people get on top of the subway train,” a sergeant told the Post.

The MTA declined to comment on the incident and deferred to police.

Last year a man died while riding the subway on the J train when he fell onto the tracks and was run over by the train as it entered Manhattan after a 1.7 ride mile over the Williamsburg Bridge.

According to Gothamist, New York’s subways can reach speeds of up to 80 km/h between stations far apart.
