What Did You Do On Rapture Day?

We can state with all honesty that no Brooklynites were saved on Saturday, though it's possible a couple of tourists were taken on the Promenade. (See BHB below.)

On the other hand, Brooklynites did many interesting things on the last day of the world. Here's a sample:

Mike, the Brooklyn Trolly Blogger, watched the man in the photo above dangle off the Williamsburg Bridge, with the NYPD in pursuit. See BrooklyTrollyBlogger for a series of photos of the event. (Update: Gothamist has the followup.)

- Ink Lake helped out at the Gowanus Canal cleanup. Good way to achieve a bit of Rapture. Ink Lake 

- WYDNKBYANM watched the sheep get sheared at the Prospect Park Zoo. WYDNKBYANM

- Folks at Brooklynian posted some hilarious videos at "Goodbye Everybody. See You in Hell."  Brooklynian

- Two souls got raptured right off a bench on the Promenade in Brooklyn Heights. BHB

- Miss Heather took the Working Harbor Tour of Newtown Creek.  NYSHitty  

- Gawker discovered a Rapture Day Anthem. Gawker

Finally, Eclectic Method created this excellent Apocamix video: "Realizing end times were approaching fast we decided to create the Apocamix all the best disaster end times scenes remixed."New York City, as usual, gets screwed.
