NYPD Reviewing Artist's Queensboro Bridge Climb Video: Report

Police are reviewing a video posted online that shows a Brooklyn street artist scaling the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge to install a piece of his work, according to a published report.

The artist, Judith Supine, posted video to YouTube Saturday showing someone scaling the suspension supports on the crossing. Once the person filming the video is atop the span, the video pans over the bridge before cutting to a piece from Supine’s “Golden Child” exhibition, according to the New York Post.

Supine also climbed the Williamsburg Bridge in 2009, placing another piece of artwork atop the Brooklyn-Manhattan crossing, the Post reports. He also dangled a piece of art off the Manhattan Bridge in 2007.

It’s not clear if he’ll face any charges.
