Embarrassing Brooklyn Borough President Bikes Into “State of the Borough” Speech, Cheesecakes in Tow

It’s getting late and I’d much rather be at an art gallery right now than getting mad about obnoxious locavore and auto industry apologist Marty Markowitz who, as the Post and many other outlets noted to varying degrees of annoyance, amusement and “meh”-ment, rode into last night’s State of the Borough speech (are we really calling it that? Yeesh!) in Sunset Park on a tricycle with a stack of Junior’s cheesecakes in his rear basket. Yes, Brooklyn’s most powerful elected official is taking product placement deals for official functions.
