Stuy Town tenants fume over bikini beauties sunbathing in children’s playground
Bikini-babe shock in Stuy Town kid parks
By KATE BRIQUELET | 12 May 2013 | [ via New York Post]
This kiddie park is being taken over by a bunch of boobs.
Co-eds and sunbathing beauties are baring teeny bikinis in Stuy Town’s playgrounds — pushing out children and outraging soccer moms.
Locals began heating up last weekend when the play zone near 20th Street Loop looked more like the Playboy Club.

“A lot of side boob on the playground this weekend,” one resident quipped on The Stuyvesant Town Report blog.
The site’s anonymous author griped: “This playground should NOT be used for sunbathing. We’ve heard that complaints were made, and now it’s time for management to . . . show some balls.”
“Think of the children!”
One soccer mom called it “a weird place” to sunbathe.
“There’s too many kids in here,” said Janine Cranmer, 46. “Sunbathe at your own risk.”
On Friday afternoon, two dozen scantily clad women soaked up rays as kids played in the shaded corners.
And last weekend, security guards booted tanners from the lawn after a kids-soccer league complained.
“A body’s a body, and they need to get over themselves,” said Katie Friedman, 23, a Hofstra grad who moved to the development in August.
She does yoga in the space, called Playground 10, an artificial lawn without equipment.
“I pay just as much rent as they do,” Friedman said. “Just because I don’t have a child doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be able to be here.”
NYU student Melissa DeBlasio (pictured), 21, watched as a guard told beauties laying out on benches outside the playground to sit up.
“This is so ridiculous,” DeBlasio said. “The sun’s out. It’s summer. People are going to be tanning.”
Kaya Gieniusz, 21, called the bikini crackdown “silly.”
“There’s just a lot of rules here, and they enforce them randomly,” said the Marymount Manhattan College student. “We pay outrageous money to live here. Let us sunbathe for a few hours.”
Still, one baby sitter told The Post the sun worshippers are making kids uncomfortable.
“The older girls I watch are a little embarrassed, and then the teenage boys come here. It’s awkward,” she said. “This is the difference between students and people who’ve been here a long time. For them, it’s more like a dorm.”
Tenants have been annoyed with management for seeking out a younger crowd for its buildings, where a one-bedroom rents for up to $3,555.
The private development also has a contract with NYU that has brought in more than 100 grad students.
Some tenants predict the tumult will subside once Stuy Town’s Oval Lawn opens in the coming weeks.
But Susan Steinberg, head of the tenants association, said all two-pieces should be banned.
“This used to be a very strait-laced community,” she said. “The sunbathing is tasteless, it’s not very classy, and it doesn’t belong in a mixed residential development.”
