CORONA — Two teens were busted for scaling one of the observation towers inside Flushing Meadows-Corona Park Sunday, Parks officials said.
The duo, aged 14 and 15, were spotted scaling the 226-foot structure by two Parks Enforcement Patrol officers on patrol near the 1964 World's Fair site on March 15, said a Department of Parks and Recreation spokeswoman.
Parks advocate Geoffrey Croft said the teens tagged the walls as they made their way to the top of the towers about 3:30 p.m., according to his blog, which first reported the bust.
Police could not immediately confirm those details.
Their names were not released.
The kids were taken to the 110th Precinct, a Parks spokeswoman said.
A NYPD spokesman said he did not have further information about the incident.
It was not clear if they were charged.
